Poem Flow: Toi Derricotte "Elegy for My Husband"

Congrats to Toi Derricotte, Cave Canem cofounder and my former professor, on being elected a chancellor to the Academy of American Poets!

Toi's new book is called The Undertaker's Daughter.

Toi and me, AWP DC, 2010


Read this poem yesterday and was quite taken by it. What an amazing woman to have learned from!

Toi is an amazing poet and teacher.

I don't think even she could have imagined her impact on the poetry community 25 years (wow!) ago when I studied with her at Old Dominion University.
