2012 Update--"Persona" Poems
For some reason, I've been writing many "persona" poems lately. The one I'm working on now was inspired by Mary Doria Russell's novel Doc about Doc Holliday. I'm writing the poem from the perspective of his cousin Mattie Ann Holliday. In keeping with the American Old West feeling, we recently went to see a great exhibit of Western art, sculpture and artifacts at the Four Arts Society Museum in Palm Beach. Their gardens were spectacular as well.
