Here we go again: ape, rape, escape, shape, even jape. Ravish: lavish, (knavish), [savage], [cabbage], {slavish}, /quavish/, McTavish. I like savage cabbage. I also think she wants to lead the reader to believe this is a sonnet about inflating fourteen lines onto an empty page, as I think you do too. She wants to ravish the emptiness of the page, to lavish her attention upon it until it agrees. And she does a good job. And works in the war and peace between the sexes. Not a religious poem, not a religious woman, at least in some of her work. I've always liked the poem. Her "love object" is fourteen lines on 8 1/2 by 11 paper. I'm swayed by the music, but not entirely persuaded.

Although still in its early planning stages, there will be an ESVM event hosted by the Powwow River Poets of Newburyport, Massachusetts on November 9th.

Among other poems, I'll be reading my parody of ESVM's "Renascence" (yes, all 200+ lines!) which was a finalist for the X.J. Kennedy Parody Award several years ago.

I hope many of you can make it!
