Favorite poem? “The Owners”
Ms Heath leaves the reader with an impression of sadness.
Ray, James and Gordon are men who have fallen in love with their
customized life-sized dolls.
These people have given up living an taken dolls as their lives.
…emotion invested in a doll that will never return it.
I sympathize with these doll lovers….even if I’m shaking my head.
