A Poetic Review by: Rodger Lowenthal
 Plunge into delicious
autobiography   Levin takes a chance
backs away carefully
intuitively alert to motive
and the responsibility of impulse
Reading For A Lamprey it is
easy to foresee Levin identifying
with the lamprey “much I am
 like you”  From The House
on Blackberry Lane
emerges antagonizing bliss
a light tone fails
to conceal dark feelings
The Lilith poems sparkle
with a joy of discovery and
down home philosophy:
“either change your life or accept your life
but don’t go around mad.”
and “I have an excellent homing device
for error.”
With a fencer’s celerity
Levin touches her reader
again and again
Be one of them

One response to “Miss Plastique by Lynn Levin

  1. A very creative method of writing a review in poetic form. Well done! The book itself sounds intriguing although the cover look a bit creepy to me. Keep on bloggin’!
