Added an Invocation to Daughters page to my website. It's just a place keeper, but I'm getting pretty excited about its 2017 release!

More often, I get, “Poetry is expression.” “Poetry is your truth.” Here, the door’s also been shut; there’s no additional need for inquiry. Expression of what, why, and how? Part of the resistance to discussion, I believe, is about the reader not quite yet having found the language to describe the what, why, and how — in terms of their own reading responses and reactions, but also the literary terminology that describes what and how the poem is happening. Perhaps there’s also a skepticism; surely, the length of the poetic line, or the fact that a poem is in a certain poetic form, is not what’s getting a reader emotionally worked up here. #FBF #poetry
