Great Regulars: And yet, Sarah Stern's recent collection

of poems, "Another Word for Love," is profoundly grounded in Riverdale--in its subway stations and parks, buildings and streets. The first of the two poems featured today, "Morning Prayer," takes place on the streets of the neighborhood, and features a curious juxtaposition of spiritual experiences, genders and visions. The second piece, "Reentry," is an homage to exceptional character, evoked so vividly that he practically walks (or rather, waddles) off the lines of the poem.
