Martha Silano's Poetic Interpretation of Schadenfreude
|Martha Silano, 2007 at the Sylvia Beach Hotel, Gertrude Stein Room|
Martha Silano is featured on one of my very favorite literary websites, Escape into Life. I swear, they always have the image artwork and images on this site. It's eye-candy, and Martha's image is literally eye-candy (and a little fireworks!)
What I love about the poems that are featured here is that 2 (two!) were started when we were together at Starbucks on Martin Luther King Way in Seattle. "Schadenfreude" and "Circle" happened because on one weekday when I had a dentist appointment that required me to be in the city, we took a couple hours to talk and write.
I am always amazed how poems are born into the world.
Congrats Martha on these incredible poems!
