Just So You Know

I have eaten
the liver
that was in
the cooler

the one
you might have been
for transplant

Sorry 'bout that
It was bloody
and so juicy

A former quilt artist, Barbara Lydecker Crane of Somerville, MA created fabric landscapes now in private, public, and museum collections. In 2011 she won the Helen Schaible International Sonnet Contest, and this year she published a chapbook of humorous poetry (including several parodies) entitled Zero Gravitas (available from Amazon or White Violet Press). As a quiltmaker, her income was pretty paltry. As a poet it's positively puny. Fortunately her husband is gainfully employed.
