NOT FOR MOTHERS ONLY: CONTEMPORARY POEMS ON CHILD-GETTING AND CHILD-REARING
edited by Catherine Wagner and Rebecca Wolfe
By the early 00s both were new mothers, and newly aware of an interesting conundrum: poems about birth, babies, and children didn't seem to get as much cultural and literary play as poems about, say, mowing the lawn, or baseball, or romantic love.
I love that.
