Don’t Touch Me, Chrissy!

Touch Me: The Poems of Suzanne Somers
Somers
1980

There’s no denying that Suzanne Somers has been prolific.  She’s written diet books, exercise books, aging books, a biography…and even a poetry book.  It’s awfully sweet and cute and charming; only a little bit nauseating.

If you have scads of extra space in your library, by all means keep it and embrace it and read aloud from it at a poetry reading program.  For everyone else, this is an example of a poetry book that could be weeded without significantly impacting the depth and scope of your poetry collection.

Holly passed on this submission and with rolled eyes said…”oh this one is for you!”
I know virtually nothing about poetry other than nothing really rhymes with orange.  I have no idea if this is “good” poetry.  I am thinking it isn’t.

 

I am Trek fan from WAY back and love everything from the original series to the latest movie. Mr. Spock has always been a dreamboat in my book.  I hope this was simply an experiment.

Live Long and Prosper!
