Poetry and the body. I've been thinking about this. For awhile, wrists kept popping up in poems, all through last fall, and do you want to know why? I had an achy left one. Lately, more wrists in poems near the end of semester rush when I'm checking in alot of books.. Throats made their way into poems all through the winter when I was suffering from a series of sore ones. When I had sinus problems, which always make my teeth hurt, there were lot of teeth poems. Just a random observation. Last week, due to that nasty baseball bat incident at the book fair, I had a livid bruise on the inside of my arm...guess how many bruises I've wanted to write in the last week...

Interesting. I had that same throat issue in poems this past winter.
