I was eating a poptart from the vending machine at my desk this morning and thinking about Olena Kalytiak Davis' poem from her first book, "The Weathered Houses on Ptarmigan Road," that ends

They'll never again dream
of that other mother
who smells like cherry Pop-Tarts
toasting, not yet burnt.

Good stuff. The poetry that is. Not the pop tart.

Ahhh! Our whole workshop is a fan of hers... I think at least 3 of us requested that she come read... cross your fingers! ;)

Make that four requests...I put her on my list, too. I say they HAVE to bring her if there's that much consensus...
