Eloise Klein Healy reads from her newly published book of poetry "A Packet Beating Like A Heart." Healy, a Los Angeles-based poet, gives a moving, energetic reading which was recorded live at the Woman's Building in Los Angeles, December 1980. Poems read: Going away -- You won't love me and I learn death -- She was my friend, too -- It could have all happened and part of it did -- Dark -- A mile out of town -- Poem for my youth/poem for young women -- Edging -- Like a woman in a short story -- A packet beating like a heart -- About losing -- I name your love for me -- Driven to meet you in rainy weather -- Generous -- I spent the day with you -- Finally -- After the last call home. Catherine Stifter, recorder.
