Today's poetry. The Country Between Us, Carolyn Forche, 1981, Cooper Canyon Press. Scooped four books of poetry today from the ever improving Black Squirrell. This is the one I want to tell you about. It is direct, strong. Here is what Margaret Atwood had to say about it: "Here is a poetry of courage and passion, which manages to be tender and achingly sensual and what is often called 'political' at the same time." I couldn't have said it better
