Marilyn Singer and Josée Masse collaborated on another collection called “Echo, Echo.”  This time it is a reverso poem collection about Greek Myths (another favorite subject of mine).  I must admit how stunned I am at how well this form works for these tales.  They seem meant for each other: Persephone and Demeter, Arachne and Athena, Perseus and Medusa, etc.  They have competing stories and voices that bend so well to the form, it really is a marvel.  Like today’s poem.  I once wrote a poem about Echo and Narcissus, trying to incorporate an echo and it didn’t work half as well as this one here.  Amazing!
