sleeping with poetry

I love sleeping with poems. Last night to bed I took to bed with my Cate Marvin's Fragment of the Head of a Queen. This collection of poems kicked my ass, went through me and excited many molecules. I wish they could love me back. The poems are that good. Cate Marvin dominates her language and writes, it seems to me, without any fear. O, to be there! I know I am brave but I am still growing into my bravery. Here is a link to one of her brilliant, head-rupturing poems.


If You Go Away
