Donut Cry For Me
by Liv Augusta
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
One of the benefits of reading on a Kindle is being able to carry a library in my hand wherever I go (the downside is that sometimes having soooo many books means you don't finish them as quickly as you might if you were only carrying one book around). That library-in-hand has meant that I can carry all sorts of books from SF to mystery to reference to... poetry! For some reason I've especially enjoyed (even memorizing) Emily Dickinson. So I was happy to add this volume to my portable library, both because it was more poetry *and* because it was by my daughter.
This was a particularly poignant entry - a perfect word picture and memory:
“Pictures old photographs hang on the wall of loved ones: far away, long since moved or recently deceased. i dread each new picture that joins, the clips and my heart already sagging from the weight of loss. Mac & Cheese gathered around the kitchen counter, we share dinner of macaroni and cheese. we share dinner, my parents and i, as though no time had passed, the same plates holding the noodles as when i was just learning to hold a fork.”
