« An Interview with Philip Brady  (by Nin Andrews) | Main | Reb Livingston Presents a Poem by Rebecca Lindenberg »

December 20, 2018


It's wonderful to read a poem like this, and be introduced to such a poet. It reminds everyone that there are poets in every community in America, in every community around the world. With or without MFAs, they live their lives, write their poems. They witness. I'm reminded of poets like Ginger Andrews, a housecleaner, and Linda Hussa, a ranch woman, and Frederick Pollack, an occasional adjunct teacher of poetry in D.C. The Academy may have no use for these poets, these people, yet they weave into the fabric of our time an indelible contribution. Thank you, Mr. Sisskind, for reminding us of the voices we forget to hear.

Great comment, Robert. Many thanks. -- DL

Robert, thank you for your kind words! I've had two books published since this one came out, and I hope you'll find poems you enjoy in both of them! Take care, Shaindel
