  1. Mom possibly channeling Niedecker here? Beautiful, really – the kind of poetry I want to read. Also have so much Portuguese language poetry in translation by C.D. I think you’d love and that appears in English nowhere else, I’ll have to scan it or photocopy it or something. Love the blog, truly, keep writing and I’ll write soon.
