THANK YOU, Diana, for trusting a poem to the podcast. It revolved us to the hottest coldest winter, and we didn’t want to leave.

Diana’s website has much more of her luscious, warrior work. Here are a few of my favorites.

Wild Cider The first poem of Di’s I ever heard! (And immediately loved.)

“The Killer Who Spared My Mother” in Longreads

“Dementia’s Gift: Facing Cancer Without the Fear” in The New York Times

Spring Poetry: Dorianne Laux, Sarah Gambito, Valencia Robin from The San Francisco Chronicle

What did you love?

Which color stuck with you? Where did you feel movement? Where did the myths feel most potent? Where did you feel like you were hearing music? Did you laugh anywhere? Where did you feel an emotion, and you didn’t know why? What felt like the tippy top height of the poem?

Tell us tell us tell us what you loved.
