Taco Tuesday

Working a double today so it's short and sweet again on the blogosphere. I was always interested in Ai while in college, but I never read much of her, mostly because the library didn't carry her work more than me not taking time for it. While cruising the New York Times poetry section, I stumbled on her obit page. Seems a little odd to include it since I've barely read her work and there's lots of other poets to cover. But I've always been drawn to the brutality in her work that manages to stay beautiful at the same time. Maybe this will finally get me to pick up a copy.
