First, may I present the winner of last week's GOOD POEMS, edited by Garrison Keillor:
Susan Taylor Brown!!! She's doing one of those Victorian Commonplace books, which is something on my I-wanna-do-that shortlist. Susan, email me at irene at irenelatham dot com, and we'll get you fixed up.
Thanks so much to all who entered!
Now for this week's giveaway. It's a book for those of us with short attention spans or tight schedules or who just need a little pick-me-up. It's POETRY IN MOTION: 100 POEMS FROM SUBWAYS AND BUSES, edited by Molly Peacock, Elise Paschen, Neil Neches.
And for Poetry Friday, here is one of my many favorite poems in the collection:
If you have taken this rubble for my past
raking through it for fragments you could sell
know that I long ago moved on
deeper into the heart of the matter
If you think you can grasp me, think again:
my stroy flows in more than one direction
a delta springing frm the riverbed
with its five fingers spread
- Adrienne Rich
Leave me a comment, and I will announce a winner next Friday... along with another great anthology to give away!
