Rating: 5 out of 5

I discovered Dorianne Laux through one of the “Ten poems to…” books. I liked the very matter of fact language and style of that example of her work. And I’ve enjoyed that in this book as well. I like how, in some of her poems, she takes me on a journey, and often doesn’t end where the start makes me think it will.

Poems I marked are:

- Two pictures of my sister
- The tooth fairy
- Bird
- Adam’s Dad teaches the kids to play ball
