This is one of, if not my absolute, favorite poems. As you said, the
phrases reach out and make such perfect PERFECT sense to those of us who
have walked these steps ourselves. The pain, the sense of
just-out-of-reach relief…. all of her phrases reach deep into my soul (and
that of so many readers, I am certain) to caress that itch. Whether that
touch serves to inflame it or soothe it is the surprise…. each time may be
the tipping point.
