Marianne McNamara from *elle ecrit* sent me the words for this week, along with this blurb about the author of the two linked poems.
“Poet, essayist, and short story writer Tess Gallagher was born in 1943 in Port Angeles, Washington, to a logging family. Her early years were marked by the rhythms of seasonal work, as well as the landscape of both the Northwest and the Ozarks, where her grandparents lived. Known for her accessible, intimate poetry, and marriage to acclaimed short story writer Raymond Carver.”
