Poem a Day Challenge- 1/3/15

Standard

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!
