glimpses from an ivory tower chapter 1 . 5/28/2007
Well, Anna, I finally broke down and got a Fictionpress account.

"an oyster's half shell, and others

obstinate and acidic- an

un-ripened oragne's skin."

The imagery in this poem is beyond stellar (probably why it's one of my favorites). Loved the Latin (I think) reference, and the "gauntlet of thorns". Really brilliant writing. Even I, unromantic and cynical as I am, find myself nodding in agreement to your words.

God, I wish you'd submitted this to Echoes. It would have been a nice relief from the fifty odd poems about love and May. Oh well, there's always next year.

I eagerly wait for the appearance of an email from fictionpress that you've written more in my spam folder.
