Equation

A beaker,
a book,
a bluestocking girl.

Alchemy.
Anarchy.
Poetry.

For A Birthday in October (Denise Levertov) at Real Toads.

Mine will have alchemy too. I love how you found her essence in the poems and, like her, speak of explosive events with perfect calm.

Excellently measured out, a perfect formula--and bonus points for 'bluestocking.'

I love this poem. So sharp. And true. My favorite is the bluestocking girl line. Really fab.
