heart (which was a Boy Scout
lost for years in a forest). And my
soul (although the judges said
it weighed almost nothing
for goodness had devoured it).
- a fragment of Miss Congeniality by Laura Kasischke
Read the poem in full.
Also: I recently read an advanced copy of Laura Kasischke's next novel, Feathered, which will be released in April 2008. Absolutely engrossing, Feathered is one of the best books I've read all year, and I recommend it strongly, especially to girls in their last year of high school. Read my review.
