Elegy for the Other Woman - excerpt:
"When your lover invites you to join him
at dinner with his old flame
who just blew into town,
Wear your barest black dress,
unwrap black lace stockings,
slip on sandals with gold spike heels.
Choose the jewelry which
is unmistakably real,
preferably his most recent gift."
"Both Monica and Hilary should read this..maybe even the whole country!!"

Grim, joyous, exuberant or erotic, they have a strong and vivid life." Josephine Jacobsen, poetry consultant at the Library of Congress, author of in The Crevice of Tiime.
