I’m writing something on Rosmarie Waldrop, can you help? Can you link me to essays/writings on her poetics, with BONUS if specifically on CURVES TO THE APPLE? Need not be “full-on scholarly,” semi-scholarly preferred.
In short: what are some essays on Waldrop that helped you learn something?

A NEW THING
is that for the rest of this month, poetry month after all, if you order a copy of YOU ARE NOT DEAD from Small Press Distribution, I will send you something in the mail. It will be something you like, hopefully. They will all be different things but may relate (and are not limited) to:
strategies for combating loneliness
When you order a copy, send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your address. Or hit forward on the convenient receipt SPD will send you, because then you have to type less.
If we know each other I will be delighted to send you the thing I will send. If we don’t, I will be even happier.
It will be a surprise what I send to both you and to me. The surprise will be our very own special shared thing.

NEW NOO, WELCOME BACK NOO, there is a poem in here from YOU ARE NOT DEAD, maybe my favorite from the book.
This is a first for me—I’ve been going to Amherst Books at least once a week for the last 2 years, living in western massachusetts. Today I walked in and saw my first book You Are Not Dead there, and had an indescribably special feeling. I had never seen my book on a shelf at a bookstore. Backing up even further: I had never had a book to be seen on a shelf at a bookstore.
Thank you Amherst Books, for being a special place for poetry, for making me feel this special happy way today.

I am still tired from AWP but here are some photos that document various activities for which I was very awake!
