[The Big Smoke reading group]
The second section of The Big Smoke gave us even more to consider. So we're curious what you thought. Beyond only the poems we already responded to -- “Sporting Life,” “Chicken & Other Stereotypes,"
“Mouth Fighting," "Cooking Lessons”-- what was one idea or topic or aspects of the poems did you find yourself really concentrating on and returning to as you read the second section of the book? Why did you linger on that point?
