Congratulations to Poet Sasha Pimentel Chacón
Congratulations to my dear friend, poet Sasha Pimentel Chacón, whose first book, Insides She Swallowed, is forthcoming from West End Press in 2009. West End Press has published books by Cherrie Moraga, Paula Gunn Allen, Luis Alberto Urrea, Russell Leong, Shirley Geok-lin Lim, and Arlene Biala, among others. Sasha is a two-time Pushcart Prize nominee, with work in OCHO, In the Grove, Colorado Review, and others. Please visit her site, drop her a line, and get in line to buy the book. You'll see me at the start of the line, full of anticipation and joy that this book is coming into the world. Click here to read her poem, "The Body Is a Host of Want."
