Poetry Sunday: “To the Women Poets,” by Kim Bridgford

Poet’s Note [on the origins of her book of sonnets, Doll ]:

I was participating in a residency at Ucross with my collaborative partner, visual artist Jo Yarrington, completing a project called “The Falling Edge,” a three-book series on our travels to Iceland, Venezuela, and Bhutan. One day in my studio writing, I remembered my husband saying: “There’s an inflatable doll in that passenger’s seat.” From there, it wasn’t difficult to picture the inflatable doll in other everyday situations—watching movies, going to the office Christmas party, and even winning the Publishers Clearinghouse Sweepstakes.
