Review of "Wedding Album 1977" by Tess Taylor

"Wedding Album 1977" by Tess Taylor was offered by Poets.org's Poem-A-Day on August 21, 2013. It is a deeply personal poem about the life of the poet's parents when the her mother was pregnant with her.  Her parents were hippies cum yuppies.  Despite the story being specific to the poet's experience, there is definitely a degree of universality.  It is difficult to imagine your stodgy old relatives as anything else, but they were all young and crazy once.
