Hi Molly! I want that chair! and the curtain and the spring wind too! My best collaboration is working with you as your private student--your brilliant editing of my poems. With your poet's intuition and technical skill you sense either what I really want to say, and help me say it, or what I should say to make a good poem. You don't try to shape me into a clone of yourself, to write poems "like" yours, but always respect and develop my individuality. Your encouragement is warm and your criticism sharp. We have become friends in poetry.

Thank you, Molly, for this in-depth exploration of Kathleen Driskell's collaboration with her illustrator, AJ Reinhart. So often, we--the readers--forget about the artists who enhance the reading experience in graphic poems and novels. I enjoyed learning more about the process of collaboration!

Dear Luann,

Just a shout out of gratitude for you and your work. For those of you who don't know, Luann Landon is a poet AND the author of Dinner at Miss Lady's, a culinary memoir. http://www.amazon.com/Dinner-Miss-Ladys-Memories-Childhood/dp/1565122275 Memory and food--a collaboration in itself.

Warm wishes,

Molly

Dear Liz Morris,

Thanks so much for the comment on Kathleen Driskell's collaboration. Just want to point out all the minireviews of graphic works in the Sunday New York Times Book Review today, November 24, 2013.

Best,

Molly Peacock

Radio

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

THE RULE OF THUMB
by T.P.Winch

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