Review of "Getting Close" by Victoria Redel

Getting Close by Victoria Redel was offered by's Poem-A-Day on June 27, 2013.  In rambling free verse, this deeply personal poem recalls the poet's relationship with her mother, dead for thirty years.  Parts are poignant; other parts are maudlin approaching creepy.  Again, I question the value of publishing such personal poems in the absence of personal fame.
