what's in your pocket? purse? handbag?

via Francois Roberts' "Contents"--a collection of photographs documenting the contents of 120 people's backpacks, pants, pockets, purses, handbags...

Of course he forgot to ask The Handbag Friends what ought to be in a handbag... (clue it's not keys and lipstick) and I don't see Clasp anywhere. But now is as good a time as any to sing The Handbag Song--won't you join me? Sing along, ready, steady, ... sing!

what is a poem?

An interviewer asked the poet, Annie Finch, how she would explain to a seven-year-old what a poem was, and she said:

"A poem is words that fit together in a special way so it's easy to remember and it sounds like magic."

such the perfect description of a poem.
plus, it kind of is one, too.

Annie Finch, born 1956 in New Rochelle, New York. Her newest book of poetry is Calendars (2003).
