Tuesday a return to Plath

Went back to Sylvia Plath - reread several poems from Ariel today. I return to them periodically. How can I not?

A new read to me, Michelle Chan Brown - Read her poem Blind Date With My Father, 1976. Fascinating, I need to find some more of her work.

Victoria Chang is a poet who I enjoy reading,  today I read her poem Dear P. XII

I've been so neglectful

Yes it's eons since I posted here.  While I'm very routine on my regular blog, I don't always make note of what I've been reading. I am going to try and do better.


• Fenny Sterenborg - poet / blogger from the Netherlands.   Come Lie With Me For A While. This is a new post of Fenny's and I enjoyed it. 

• Joannie Kervran Stangeland - The Musician Plays on Rue Corneille. I like how Stangland's poem moves from one point to another and the juxtaposition between them.

• Re-reading some of the poems in Birthday Letters by Ted Hughes
