Letter from Poetry Magazine

Letter to the Editor

by Rod Pederson
Dear Editor,

It has been a very long time since I've read any prose quite as fine as Naeem Murr's "My Poet" [ July / August, 2007]. I read it aloud to my Artist as we drove from Ottawa to Montreal. It has become something of a touchstone for us. She wishes me my very own origami swan and I wish her liberation from theorists.

Ottawa, Canada
