"Lest this be Heaven indeed
An Obstacle is given
That always gauges a Degree
Between Ourself and Heaven."

-Emily Dickinson

I am loving these Emmy, and most flattered for the company I'm keeping here on Ysleta Poeta. xoxo

And I keep finding more lines of yours I'd include, but then I might end up retyping your whole American Flamingo :). There are so many key moments in the American Flamingo poems for me that are beautifully complex, where the poem's essence reveals itself like "sunlight on [the] wrist."

Emmy, you'll never know how much that means to me...truly, you've made all the hard work worthwhile. I'm so lucky to have such an amazing reader. xoxo
