memory takes some time to compose
itself into a story all of us want to believe,
although of course it wasn't like that.
-Richard Howard, from "The Rape of the Daughters of Leucippus by Castor and Pollux" as it appeared in The Best American Poetry 2008, ed. Charles Wright.
(Also, updated Etsy yesterday, although there isn't much there anymore! I have some mending to do and a pair of shoes that I so badly want to keep, but they are too small, so I'll throw that stuff up over the weekend!)
