I’m not a subscriber of the Oprah Magazine but on occasion I’ll check it out when I’m at the bookstore. In particular, I’m a fan of the Reading Room section. I like to see what others have on their reading lists. Anyway, I’m really glad I picked up this latest issue because there’s an article on Sandra Cisneros and I’ve found out she has a new book in the works. Yay.
Champagne Poem for La Rosie
The first glass will make you laugh.
The second will have you making others laugh.
The third is for singing operettas.
The fourth to give you wings.
The fifth will have you forget
the things you chose to remember
and remember things you chose to forget.
The sixth is for courage when dialing Him.
The seventh to bring down cuss and concupiscence.
Congratulations. The eighth will drive you to bed or brawl.
Or to brawl in bed. Same difference.
Her poems are sexy, filled with attitude and manage to be bold and tender all at once. So hope you’ll check some of her poetry out if you haven’t yet.
So, what magazine have you read lately and has it led you to some new authors or books?
