Poem: “Knot” by Sarah Levine
Source: Green Mountains Review
Favorite Line/Phrase: “I stuffed your hair/ in my jacket pocket.”
Response: What an amazing first two lines. What an amazing first stanza. That hooks me. And reminds me how simple and elegant a great beginning is. I don’t know if I love the reference to the “heart,” but the poem certainly works hard to earn it. And it doesn’t end there, thank goodness!
