Valentine's Day Special

In honor of Valentine's Day, we're going to share some love (or, in case of today's selection, "anti-love") poems from Cecilia Woloch's heartfelt & yearning collection, Carpathia. We also asked Cecilia to give brief introductions to the poems.
As a special offer for this week only, we're also offering Carpathia for only $10 (shipping included)! To get this special Valentine's Day offer, just call 585-546-3410 (ext 13), and ask for Peter. Here's what Cecilia Woloch had to say about her poem "Anniversary": "I think of this almost as an 'anti-love poem.' It holds a moment for me -- luminous and sacred -- at that moment when love seems whole, before the coming apart..." Anniversary Didn't I stand there once, white-knuckled, gripping the just-list taper, swearing I’d never go back? And hadn’t you kissed the rain from my mouth? And weren’t we gentle and awed and afraid, knowing we’d stepped from the room of desire into the further room of love? And wasn’t it sacred, the sweetness we licked from each other’s hands? And were we not lovely, then, were we not as lovely as thunder, and damp grass, and flame?
