Memo to Marty
Lucia Blinn, signed by author
$4.00

s/t:  Poems

The poem calls our world a bizarre one, not a brave one. It talks of shootings and global warming, terrorism and the presidential election.  The way Lucia Blinn reads it, though, is soothing. It’s as if she’s reading a book to a child. She says she writes for herself, but this poem is for her late husband, Marty.  It’s called “Memo to Marty 2016,” and it recaps political, cultural and personal events that Blinn’s late husband has missed since the previous “memo” she wrote him in 2013. He died in 1993, and Blinn wrote her first memo to him in 2004. That memo recalls 9/11, the O.J. Simpson trials, Jackie Kennedy Onassis’ death and Martha Stewart’s stock trading scandal.  These memos, along with two others, are in “Memo to Marty,” her fifth book of poetry, which was published in the spring. The book contains other poems that she’s written throughout the years, as well.
