for me I'll be at No Tell Motel all week.

Checking out this weekend -- the turndown service here is excellent, as are the views, the rooms are very spacious. Five Stars.
Thanks for the lovely notes & postcards~*

God I LOVE that poem. It rocks.

woo-hooo!

Talia said...

Indeed!

"Our parents were line dancing, were bank
tellers, were absent. We were a family that knew
nothing about its members."

I know about all of that...I need to write my own "Great Lash"

Jake Adam York said...

Congratulations.

My question, having read one brilliant chapbook and handfulls of your poems, is when does the full-length mind-rewiring book emerge?

I'm jonesing.

How am I ever going to get this smile off my face? Jake, your words could not have come at a better time for me -- you ask a very good question -- know that I am doing everything I can to remedy you a fix. Thanks for the words and for this smile.

i love these poems, suzanne. they make me want to read more and more and more.

"and your children

perennials of your own making; for

the rest of your life

the view of their backs

as they push away from you."

this brings tears to my eyes it is so true and beautifully written (and i don't have kids).

Suzanne said...

Emmy, thank you so much for this gift, I really appreciate your response to the poem, looks like I might end up with a permanent smile --
