Poetry and the Art of Choosing Favorites

Poetry and the Art of Choosing Favorites

I do not have favorite women poets. There, it’s out. I do not have favorite men poets either, so it’s an even deal. What could this mean? After all, I am a poet, a poetic author (I’ve been likened to Jane Kenyon and Annie Dillard), and the owner of T. S. Poetry Press. Oh, and […]

I Fell for 99 Artists – A Poem by US Artist Mariah Wheeler
