If you're nervous about flying, there's nothing like getting swept away with something absorbing, frivolous and irreverent.
Today I read the poem Delta Flight 659 by Denise Duhamel.
It's addressed to Sean Penn, and from her collection, Ka-Ching! (2009).
Here are some of her works:
(Co-edited with Nick Carbo in 2002) Sweet Jesus: Poems About the Ultimate Icon
...and some collaborative works:
Exquisite Politics (1997)
Little Novels (2002)
Saints of Hysteria: A Half Century of Collaborative American Poetry (2007)
