How the Sow Became a Goddess
1976, Confluence Press
This is one of the first books ever published by Confluence Press, back when M.K. Browning, the press’s founder, was still its editor and publisher.
A few of these poems were later published in A Suitable Church and then again in my new and selected. I’ve included as a reading sample a poem that has never been republished.
Needless to say, this book is out of print.
