    Adrienne Rich is one of my favorite poets. I admire her for many things, not just her poetry.
    I find her poetry of the late 60's and early 70's to be full of power and presence, wonderfully
    wrought, and revolutionary in words and grammar manipulations. I was a convert to her work
    very early. I loved her flair for the revolution of her soul in words, her wonderful words.
    I didn't like this poem; too simple-and besides I think the sort of confessional poetry that calls
    for overt self exposure in intimate areas is unnecessary and ultimately vain. Wow, a love-making session. Not interested. Hackneyed.

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
