Thanks for this really interesting post, Jenny. Another poet who uses storytelling techniques to great advantage is Anne Caston. Her first book is "Flying Out With the Wounded" by NYU Press, and she is widely published in journals, if you'd like to check her stuff out. I think you'd like it!

Thanks, Laura. And thank you for reminding me of Anne Caston's work. She's an Alaska writer, right? I believe I've seen--and enjoyed--both her poetry and her creative nonfiction.

Yes, she's from Alaska, but she is in the process of moving to Pennsylvania even as we speak. She will still teach in the UA MFA program. Here's a link to one of her poems:

"Poetry is the supreme fiction, madame." Wallace Stevens.

The data presented in this report is interesting and useful,Thanks.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
