Poet Spotlight: Lorine Niedecker

Lorine Niedecker is one of the female authors who I consider my Dead Best Friends I Never Met. (Jane Austen is one, Emily Dickinson is the other.) I read her before bed every night then sleep with her under my pillow. Heck, why not, right? It might do something through osmosis or whatever it's called.
