Poem a day challenge- 1/13/15

Standard

Sorry the brief hiatus- a bad flu bug is no joke when 7 months pregnant!  Anyway, back to the poetry!

Poem: “Talking Back to the Mad World” by Sarah C Harwell

Source: Poetry Foundation

Favorite Line/Phrase: “I love/ the tattered/ camisole of/ nothing.”

Response: The past few days have been a blur of fever and sleep.  And then the guilt of not executing all that the days require.  And then I find a poem like this.  A poem of rough and “lazy. garbagey magic.”  Sometimes, the right poem feels like it is written just for us.
