Sarah Kennedy is a professor at the college I'm attending this fall. She is adorable and oh so ethereal. Besides, her poetry is hot. Have a quip of one of her poems, and a photograph (albeit, not a great one) for good measure.


Hannah hiding jars of molasses cookies
just for her during those dustbowl years
that my grandmother veered from lover
to shrink to a Pentecostal God. I can't imagine
what a mental hospital in Missouri
looked like in the thirties, what electro-shock

back then could do to a woman's brain,
to a family's good name, but I want to believe
that my mother blazed, for a while, with lust,

that she took pleasure in feeling his hands
between her thighs before she settled
for my father, church, and a half a dozen children.
