It’s one thing to find a book signed by the poet in a used bookstore—

handwritten dedication by Adam Zagajewski in a book of his selected poems

—but then to notice there’s a broadside tucked inside, signed by that poet?…

signature of Maya Angelou under the handwritten word JOY! on a broadside of her poem Phenomenal Woman

And all for ten bucks?

Happy Birthday to me.
