Review of "Pleasure" by Katie Peterson

"Pleasure" by Katie Peterson, a teacher at Tufts, was offered by's Poem-A-Day on October 25, 2013.  A link to the poem, including the poet's notes, may be found here:

The poem consists of 14 lines, an obvious nod to the sonnet form, but there is otherwise no reason to call the poem a sonnet.  The first thirteen lines describe various aspects of a meaningful past romantic relationship in the speaker's (presumably the poet's) life.  The last line is a real zinger.
