I know nothing about poetry, except that awful poetry is 100x worse than awful prose, and there’s so much awful poetry out there that it’s almost impossible to pick through it all to find anything I like.
But if anyone has a favorite poem… or two, or twenty, or eleventy-two, I think today would be a good time to share them.
I don’t care if it’s Ulysses or a dirty limerick or anywhere in between, it you like it, let me have it. Don’t assume I’ve already heard of it or someone else will suggest it. Chances are I don’t and no one will. Well, except that Nantucket one. I have heard that one.
I’ll share one of the only ones I know and like too.
