here is the best eleven dollars and ninety five cents i have ever spent.
The Good Thief is a mere 52 pages of poetry, yet the most breath taking, stunning... i am in love with you marie howe.
there is a sore on my back
from where i lent into the counter;
reading your words doubled my weight
i could not stand, but listen.
my inner voice turned into something
under a trance and swaying to yours.
really, i hurt myself and i didn't feel it happening.
marie is a magnificent and powerful woman--my new role model. i want to grow up to be as much a poet as she.
i had the opportunity to read almost every poem out loud, in full range of my voice. i fear though, my own voice is lacking the nuance and grace of marie's intention. she's that good.
