I was looking for one book in particular: ANIMAL EYE by Paisley Rekdal. I'd not read any of Paisley's work, but I'd seen her book as one of the finalists on Goodreads' annual reader's choice awards.
Imagine my delight when I found it, right there, front and center, on the shelf! I cracked it open and started reading.
And then I had to sit down. No lie. I was so moved by this one poem, I had to find a chair and read it again. And again. It's one of those poems I feel like was written just for me -- or rather, I am just the reader for that particular poem.
And maybe -- especially if you were once a horse-loving gal like I was -- maybe you are the reader for this poem, too.
