Poetry Friday: Miss Congeniality by Laura Kasischke

And my

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.
