Roma's Poetic Side

"I have seen a great deal of the world.
People are pretty much the same."

"Good dog?"
Oh, thanks so much,
Ms. Good Person."

The poems by Roy Blount, Jr. were inspired by the lovely photographs by Valerie Shaff in If only you knew how much I smell you: True portraits of dogs  (A Bullfinch Press Book). Thanks to Erica for loaning the book. --z

  1. So glad you like the book - it is one of my absolute favorites.

    In one of the recent home magazines there is a shot of living room and that book is on the top of a stack of books on an end table. I thought, some good people live there!
