poet: fanny howe

Reading The Sound and the Fury  in American Realism-Modernism class, and my professor brought up the poet Fanny Howe who writes about the in-betweens, the bridges and gaps in things, and is just completely wonderful and a bit beyond me at times. This poem reminds me a bit of Ben Okri's "African Elegy" - "We are precious/And one day our suffering/ Will turn into the wonders of the earth."
