NEW POEM UP AT THE POETRY FOUNDATION
"Mom Betty Addresses the Nature of Proportion" is one of those poems I wish I did not have to write. But I wrote it, and now it's now up at The Poetry Foundation. I'll be doing a radio interview with the Foundation and WFMT Radio Network this Friday. They'll then host a four-minute excerpt of the interview at POETRY NOW -- if you click on that link, you'll see that I'm in good company, and this is a good feature at the Poetry website of poets talking about their poems.
Thanks to the Poetry Foundation.
The poem, by the way, was written after a photograph by Paul Tanedo entitled "She was the song of my dark hour."
