"o no reply, just my skinny arms resting
on an alabaster rendition of Mary"
Bought a copy of Carl Annarummo's chapbook, $4 Poems (Pettycoat Relaxer, 2003) last night. And by chance, from the author himself. Good to meet you, Carl.
The poems are, as expected, wonderful. Read the first half last night and I'm looking forward to the rest.
