Further Lovely Lettuce Lore (from Anna's salad days), Julie Cooper-Fratrik

14.99

In these playful poems, Anna is all women, everywhere: their voices and their voicelessness. Language is her raison d’etre, its vowels and consonants her very breath, the names of lettuces: Rosso di Trento, Green Ice, Rouge d’Hiver, the language of love. “I’m walking with my sweetca(u)se on the wild, wide-shouldered shores of love.” She teases (“Will the swallow mouse the bird?”) She meditates. She swoons, “‘I am having the dizzies today,’ says Anna.”

Julie Cooper-Fratrik, Achievement Grant in poetry (Leeway Foundation, Philadelphia), MFA from Goddard - VT College. Collections: The Slow Separations, Breathing Lessons (a remembering), and Further Lovely Lettuce Lore (from Anna’s salad days).
