it was amazing

Just finished reading this wonderful first book of poems by Jennifer Kronovet (who is a dear friend and new mother!). I have only read it once and rather quickly, but I am tickled and touched throughout by JK's humor, as always. My task for the next reading is to explore JK's use of the first person plural, which, on the first reading, was more marked than the "I." "We" is a big question here, in a book of poems about the direction of meaning always away--both addressed toward others and sometimes just floating by without any stable receptacle in any "me." Fun!
