@uemmak @sarahP NOTED! Time for an Edna St. Vincent Millay re-read.
@worldofsass, I took "they" to mean men, and the poem to be in part about her thirtysomething realization that she'd been choosing the wrong men, or loving the ones who wouldn't love her back, until they did. But I don't actually know if that's true!
Yay for these comments. So much good stuff I must re-read immediately!
@lookuplookup I would say this one does, especially when Kate is young and then new to New York, but really it's woven throughout. I need to read Blood, Bones & Butter, which I've heard is great.
@RachelAnn @iceberg Oh, I think you ladies are right! (Blame my getting all kerfuffled on the shiny smoothness.)
@gobblegirl it was my grandma, and she said no. they stayed together though! she was just "over" marriages at that point?
