Brenda Hammack
Whenever Brenda begins to notice the honey-slimed walls of poetic purgatory, she recalls Edward Bear's response to Rabbit's "Hallo, are you stuck?" when the latter finds all drafts effectively blocked in his doorway. "N-no." Pooh pretends comfort. "Just  resting and thinking and humming to myself." And, though she's allergic to bees, she usually finds such humming to be cathartic in all sorts of situations. She expects it may prove useful in the event of premature embalming. She teaches at Fayetteville State University.
