About this title


Second book by the housecleaner and winner of the Nicholas Roerich Prize, whose poems have been read a record 18 times by Garrison Keillor on The Writer's Almanac.

"Getting Ready To Be Poor"

My sister laughs, says she can eat Ramen noodles
For lunch and dinner, instead of just for lunch.
It's no big deal, she's been poor before.

No washing whites in hot.
No deodorant, floss, Q-Tips, Kotex or Midol.
One-ply toilet paper. No Kleenex. No cotton balls.

No new shoes. No espresso. No Red Bulls, or Taco Bell.
No vacation, Lord knows, and no cash for the collection plate.
But, she says, I can take on more cleaning jobs. I can do that.

About the Author:

Ginger Andrews won the 1999 Nicholas Roerich Poetry Prize with her volume, An Honest Answer. She has lived most of her life in Oregon, where she cleans houses for a living with her sisters. She is also a janitor and Sunday School teacher at her church. Her poems have appeared in The Hudson Review, Poetry, River Sedge, The American Voice, and in several recent anthologies, including Good Poems edited by Garrison Keillor. Keillor has also read poems from An Honest Answer eleven times on The Writer's Almanac, and three times from the manuscript, Hurricane Sisters, we're publishing in the spring.
