First Person Fabulous
I've been reading a lot of Matthea Harvey lately—Sad Little Breathing Machine and Modern Life—and then just now was looking to see if my reading tomorrow was listed anywhere...ANYWAY, I found this! From a recent Time Out!
M.H. creates a poem—a cento!—out of lines from this summer's "top 20 beach reads"...including...PERSONAL DAYS!?!?!?!?
I put my cheek to the ground
in order to blow softly on an ember.
It felt like the world was rushing up to meet the sky.
(First two lines by David Guterson; last line by me!)
