5 to celebrate with




April being National Poetry Month, I wanted to share some poems with you that caught my ear. All of these are from Braided Creek: a conversation with Jim Harrison (Ted Kooser).


How one old tire leans up against

another, the breath gone out of both.

All those years

I had in my pocket.

I spent them,


The face you look out of

is never the face

your lover looks into.

Every time I go outside

the world is different.

This has happened all my life.

What if everyone you’ve loved

were still alive? That’s the province

of the young, who don’t know it.
