For those of you who don't know about this book, it's about Cleopatra's only daughter Selene. Imagine having a mother like Cleopatra -- a mother who chose the love of Egypt over everything (and everyone) else.

3. I've added tabs to ye olde blog. Now our Progressive Poem has its own resting place. If you haven't had a chance to see how it turned out -- including a wonderful title provided by Kate Coombs, please read!
4. Also check out the "How to Live Your Poem" tab. This is something I'm working on. Basically, it's a list of personal and resonant-to-me directives pulled from poems. I'd love your suggestions for additions to the list!
5. Finally, allow me to share one of a gazillion quotes I'd like to share from A GOD IN THE HOUSE: Poets Talk about Faith from Tupelo Press:
