The other night, on the way to the hospital, I grabbed Paul Guest's Notes for My Body Double. It wasn't just the morphine: these are awesome poems.

Just caught up on your news -- hope you feel better soon.

Oh, and love your reading list, especially Blood Almanac by Sandy Longhorn.

Thanks, Karen. I'm back up to full speed now.

I always enjoyed reading the poems Sandy sent to West Branch when I was on staff there. Can't believe I'm so behind on my reading, but teaching comp will do that to ya.
