Do you want to put your hand on my belly and feel it kicking?
I am glowing with its near-complete gestation,
not dreading the labor of its arrival but aching with the anticipation,
the slowness of its slow coming.
I am blissed out with impatience. I am popping!

The book! The book!

  2. Such a gift, this birth of words and other things. Whenever I bring new friends to the awareness of their ability to tell their story in poetic fashion, I suggest that they seek out a few writers that I enjoy and admire, and you, as my favorite Daniel at PA, are among them.
