Mary Tagged Me

"...five poetry collections you may not have read but certainly must. (Note: The collections, for whatever reason, should be a bit off the beaten path. And need not have caused the earth to open and swallow you whole.)"

In April, Mary B. tagged me with the above list. I just re-discovered it and thought I would try it out.

Bitter Angels by Amy Gerstler
More Under Saturn by William Dickey
A Hunger by Lucie Brock-Broido
Lie Awake Lake by Beckian Fritz Goldberg
To a Blossoming Pear Tree by James Wright

Yeah, yeah, I'm old school.

I love Amy Gerstler!

I tried to get Gerstler to come to Cleveland many years ago, but it didn't work out....
