How could this not be a win/win day?
The coat I had on was blue. The poem I had in my pocket today was this. I was actually really excited to discover this poet, Natalie Diaz, and still am. I hope you all have experienced such joy this month, National Poetry Month.
Who have you read this month? It's still April! (Did you know that my co-blogger is a magnificent poet and one of my favorites?)
I also carried the book pictured above around today and let people tear poems from it. I'm only sorry I didn't keep track of what I gave away.
As the photo above indicates, I spent my subway commute reading poetry. I had been neglected it all month for some reason. I was reminded again of what it can do, how it can reorder my experience, and take apart how I experience language. (Just to be really facile about it.)
To reference a previous blog of mine: What are you reading?
Tights: yellow for the gray day. Also, I boldly wore them with a teal coat.
Inspiration: poetry about tight places
