Read in April, 2008

I stole this from my co-worker Leslie's box today... I know... I'm a really, really bad person and Leslie I'm so sorry! I just had to know what "Blue Lipstick" was about, and then when I saw it was concrete poems... well... I just had to read it!

I read this over about an hour (helping patrons along the way) and there were some that just KILLED me (Zombie Jocks; Grownups: Talking A+, Listening D-; and Poems Inspired by the Free Perfume Samples at Carson's) so I have to give this the VERY solid four star but with I could bump it up a half star.

The author's final note is to keep a poem in your pocket because "It's a little snack for your soul." and I just loved that thought.

And on that thought....GO National Poetry month!

Leslie Hey, I'm sure you put it back, so it is really just "borrowing!" :) I've got her first one at home and I'm enjoying it, too!
