    Incredible poem! Wonderful collection!!: rich with a wide variety of styles and artists that I that I've read... and new ones introduced. Angst and love and beauty and... Surprised to see a poem by Audrey Hepburn too. Emily Dickinson !!!! “A Brown Girl's Guide to Beauty” by Aranya Johar broke my heart... also "Pretty". Langston Hughes ! Khalil Gibran !!: "People of Orphalese, beauty is life when
    life unveils her holy face.
    But you are life and you are the veil.
    Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mir-
    ror.
    But you are eternity and you are the mir-
    ror." !!! Used his poem "On Marriage" recently in a talk for a memorial for a dear friend.
    ... and on... WCW !! Interesting the dichotomy between the male and female view (especially modern). Beauty. (sigh).
