I have been reading RD Larsonís work for a long time. I like and respect her work, and will continue to read it for as long as she continues to write. I admire her boldness and courage. She writes with intelligence, sensitivity, and a deep sense of responsibility to her readers. When her book, Evil Angel became available, needless to say I had to read it, and very glad I did. RDís masterful characterization made those people become so real, that I still think Iíve met them in person. In fact, I have booby-trapped my closet and sleep with my night-light turned on. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys being entertained, intrigued, angered, and scared to death, or of it, all at the same time. -- Carmen Ruggero

exciting, dangerous and sexy.

So meaningful. As much as we would often like to ignore the "inevitable," it must be faced. Thank you. Love and peace,
Brain Dead (Poetry) - 6/28/2005 6:44:07 AM
Salient and oh so relevant. Great work!
Peace in all things,

Well done, RD. Poignant -- you hit the nail on the head. I think it is rightfully immoral to keep a person alive after brain function has stopped -- funny: we wouldn't do that to an animal. We are so driven by the need to see someone alive even though life function has ceased. Human love can be so selfish. Thanks for writing this.

This one puzzles me. I don't know its meaning. Don't mind me as I'm having a dumb moment.

cool. well done.
Wrapped (Poetry) - 8/13/2004 6:43:35 PM
Seems to me you've done a pretty good job of expressing/showing scattered thoughts. That's just the way the come and go.
"feathered fears caught on a wing," < love that line. :-)

BEAUTIFUL!!!! Floats in my mind!
No Redemption (Poetry) - 4/29/2004 4:15:17 PM
I have to agree this is sad but inevitable. I like the way you write it.

"All of us seem to die ln a concert of emotions" This line stopped my heart. You're a writer in every sense of the word.
No Redemption (Poetry) - 9/8/2003 1:17:25 PM
Wow! Right up my alley, RD! Wonderful sense of futility, frustration and fatigue!! :)
No Redemption (Poetry) - 9/8/2003 4:01:02 AM
Yes, I agree with Carmen. This was sad. Wish it didn't happen that way.

This is so sad. But it is true. We hang on to the end, as we watch it all fall about. Good write, RD. It left me speechless. I guess this is one I'll read again, and again.

I love this ... what ever the age be yo self.

From conception to birth; a lonely process. But so rewarding when you get there. Thank you for sharing this.
The Bread of Life (Poetry) - 9/4/2003 10:50:56 AM
Such a sad poem. So well expressed. I like what you did with the card game and the bread falling as her own feelings fell in with pain. Well done, RD.

This is funny but at the same time so true to life. I wish you the best taking on politicians when you're old--somebody has to and you'll have the advantage of pretending deafness, a definite plus. J.

The same as you now only only moreso eh? That's the way to go...sock it to em...I loved this,I am still smiling broadly from tis read,no drool yet but I may do that later whilst nodding off.I am getting old but have done most of what's in your poem since birth (it's the only way to go)no snoring yet though(unless my kids don't tell me) but I have carried a walking stick (a long umbrella really.... to shoo the swooping magpies away)for ages now.Taunting the politicians?My bloody oath that's good idea,I will too,( with joy).Fuzzy chin? never in a billion years ,I'd rather die,hey,someone told me that your hair still grows even after your dead,truly...damn,I may end up with fuzzy chin after all.My bones are aching,time to go,loved
the poem youngster.

Having worked in public schools for years, and having known of cases which, though reported, our hands were tied, this touches me very deeply. Too many laws we have, too many 'rights' to protect, not enough intervention. The tragic result is that children die. And we go on thinking 'we've tried, but 'tried' is not enough!
Thank you for writing this, RD. And thank you for sharing it with us.

I feel your pain. God bless you.
Adrian Beloved Angel Child (Poetry) - 8/29/2003 9:51:51 PM
You've portrayed the helplessness and the hope that a loving will can make a difference in a tiny abused life, RD. I am so sorry for this child, for them all. Your poem is piercingly sad...
Adrian Beloved Angel Child (Poetry) - 8/29/2003 8:37:33 AM

Adrian Beloved Angel Child (Poetry) - 8/29/2003 7:14:59 AM
Too sad! Thank you for sharing such a tough subject... it's always the children that suffer.... tears here...

Shockinly sad, but bravely written.
A child's pain becomes our own.
Peace and hugs to you
