Dear Anne Waldman from Isabella

April 4, 2016

Dear Anne Waldman,

What inspired you to write “Fast Speaking Woman?” How can you be a rock woman, monkey woman, bird woman, and a tundra woman at the same time? I like the repetition you used because it has different endings. I also noticed that you are a complicated woman. I like this poem because it’s very interesting. I also noticed that you use “woman” on the end of most sentences, which makes you a big and bold woman. This poem stands out to me because it reminds me of my mother. For example, she is a brave woman, playful woman, loving woman, and an animal woman. She has lots of characteristics just like you! I would like to be like my mom one day because she has many characteristics which make you a special woman.
