congrats Jan! this is one of my favs from your book. good luck tonight. (also...i have to ask...how did you get the poem there? or is it the work moving itself foward into the world now? in some ways i hope its the latter. it's always nice for the poems to do the work of getting notice without our vigilance...)

Thanks Drew! :)

Thanks Jennifer. I wish I could say it was my doing, but I think my publisher played a role in getting the book to the AAP. It's nice the poem (and the book) are getting a day of attention.

Congrats! Love that poem, too.

January, congrats! It's an awesome poem. Those last four lines are killers, especially the use of "bleached me."

Terrific, January! I don't pay enough attention to their poem of the day - perfect example of why I should.

i was so excited when i saw this in my inbox (i receive them every day). a local poet here even forwarded his copy to me and said, "hey, isn't this your friend?" i said, "yeah, baby!" yeah, baby! yeah, baby!
