I probably shouldn't even
write this poem (because
I really do love the woman),
but watching Sharon Olds
recite her poetry reminds one
of Ted Kooser wearing a long
streaked auburn colored wig.

dear TheRealKarmaTseringLhamo,
Thanks for your comment.

This poem was insprired by a YouTube video I watched recently. It's a video of Sharon Olds reading her poems "Ode to a Composting Toilet" and "Ode to the Tampon."

Below is a link to the video. I'm affraid you can not link directly to it from here, but you can certainly view it if you want to.

I hope you have a happy holiday season.


john. john glow.
