Writing this last cento using poems by both Lowell and Bishop was the most gratifying of work. Putting their voices, these two poets who were such good friends, in direct dialogue with each other gradually took on more and more significance for me. It feels like a Valentine of sorts.
Thanks again to Carolee and Jill over at ReadWritePoem for the cento education!
This’ll come down in a couple days. Hope your Valentine brings you chocolate.
