- Finally, a reminder to all those poetry-lovers out there, this is one of the gifts I am giving this season: Your Ten Favorite Words by Reb Livingston. Reb is a wonderful poet and a sometime guestblogger. Yes, we are biased but we also know good work when we see it: Reb is the real deal. If you don't believe us, take a look at what others are saying:
Reb Livingston, a poet of whimsical intelligence and daring grace, writes poems both naughty and nice. With breathy, brisk eroticism and long-lasting passion for the language, these poems dance and sing like a good-sounding drunk. Let them love you and you'll never get their seedy taste out of your mouth.
–Lorna Dee Cervantes, CU Boulder, author of Drive: The First Quartet
