To Katha Pollitt: I’ve just read your most recent column on the book Lean In, and found it lovely even though I have had no contact with the controversies you described. But I did so mostly so that I could tell you that I’ve had one of your poems on my refrigerator for about twenty-five years or more, and that it’s “The Mind-Body Problem.” So, reading in your bio here that you’ve published a second book of your poetry by the same name, and just recently, too, I’m very excited to go look for it now. So, from a remedial writer and poet, thank you for all these years of keeping me company in the kitchen, and sane.
