Description - Where I Live by Maxine Kumin

Here is a landmark collection celebrating the remarkable range of Maxine Kumin, one of America's greatest living poets. Where I Live gathers poems from five previous books, together with twenty-three new poems that pay homage to Kumin's farm life and also to poets of the past. from "The Taste of Apple" I could hardly see as he hoisted the great swaying body aloft and bore it across the road to the hole and in the cold dark I poured a libation of apple juice for the earth to welcome his corpse- some drops spilled on his chestnut flank and some dribbled on his cheek and splashed onto his yellow teeth as he lay deep on one side and my hand shook-I could hardly see- rocking my grief back and forth over this kind death the taste of apple wasting in his mouth.
