          This is my second posting from Astoria and another good one at that. The concept here reminds me of a reduced version of Galway Kinnell’s “Shoes of Wandering” section from Book of Nightmares. In this particular version of the afterlife, I’ll be a sock, unmatched, argyle, footless. How bout you?

Poem of the Week, June 8-14

          For my money, Astoria is one of the best books written in the last decade.  Not only does she inspire me, but she actually gets me to the page without fail.  I’m so glad I came across this book.
