[Poem a Day] “Straining to Listen”

Check out today’s post on Instagram.

Unrelated – headed over to a poetry reading today. I’ve read Ben Purkert’sĀ For The Love of EndingsĀ two or three times cover to cover so far, and I feel like I’m still trying to fully absorb a lot of it. He taught a poetry course at the college I used to go to. Always kind of shied away from reading his original work to his students, save for a few pieces on the last day of class. Looking forward to hearing a bit more today.
