How Lucky I Am to Know a Poet Like You

Upstart Journal of English Renaissance

I have been trying to slow life down lately, and one of the things I’ve done is to be more choosy with my online time, to read more, and take in the daily life around me.

I’m so glad I’ve been making these changes, because I’m getting more time to read the wonderful posts by my fellow bloggers, and incredible poetry by some amazing people I met through Chatham’s MFA in Writing.

I need to share one of them with you today: Caroline Tanski. Her latest poem is in the current issue of Upstart: A Journal of English Renaissance Studies, and I can’t think of a more beautiful piece to introduce you to her work.

When My Mother Calls Me Thin

I recognize so many writers I love in this issue of Upstart, and have been enjoying working my way through the issue, savoring each piece.

Thank you, Caroline Tanski, for writing such a clever and moving poem and sharing it with the world.

Love, Marla
