These are Sundress' poem picks for highlighting from INVENT(ST)ORY.  I'll update as updates are posted on the Sundress Blog -- it's always interesting to see what different readers highlight from one's books.  Readers often choose poems that I, as a reader, might not have. Keeps it all interesting ...

Jan. 11: "Listing"

Jan. 12: "Filipina Brides"

Jan. 13: Footnote to "Military Goodies"*

Jan. 14: "I Forgot My Skin Was Ruin"

Jan. 15: excerpt from "Letters from the Balikbayan Box"
