  1. Iodine is on my wish list. I gave up buying books for Lent. After Easter…well, probably the library!!

    I see you and I like many of the same poets, though we have different collections. I need more Olds, Lee Young Lee, have read lots of Jee at PFFA and his blog, but have yet to buy his books – need to rectify that! Also need to get some of Doty’s work and definitely Stone’s! Have not read any of the lit., although I recognize some of them. Thanks so much, Risa, I have lots to get me started, now!
