Plug of the Moment

My very first poetry chapbook, of course!  She is a collection of work that I like to think of as adventures in femininity.  Mostly, it's a compilation of my older stuff, but many are my own personal faves, like "Pearl," "Dorrit on Santorini," and "Mermaid."  Others are great pieces that for one reason or another have never seen the light of day, like "Mir Space Station Manned by Welfare Mom" and "For Sylvia Plath."  Definitley a must-read, if I do say so myself. :-)


Jumping on the Internet bandwagon at last...
