...occasional postcards from Washington, D.C. writer Sandra Beasley...
Ha! Sandra, I love this one -- insightful and also damn funny. Ever checked out Richard Grossman's book "The Animals"? I really think it's amazing -- full of witty (often acerbic) animal persona poems. (BTW, I lived in Australia for three years and never saw one of these guys alive, even at the zoo. The day I went to the Taronga zoo, the platypus had been conveniently removed for "cleaning." I'm still not convinced the species isn't an elaborate practical joke by a group of naughty Australian geneticists.)
This is wonderful! I am so happy I did not miss this one.
I love this blog, the sestina, the entry on anthologies, all of it! Please visit my website sometime -It's www.gailwhite.org
Enjoying your work with sestinas, Sandra.
