Happy National Poetry Month!

So go read some poetry this month.

Seriously. They have some at the library. You can even read Shel Silverstein. Remember him? He counts. And he’s good, though, if you’re an adult, you should consider supplementing him with maybe some Whitman or Frost. And consider maybe challenging yourself a little? Some non-dead white males? Claudia Rankine’s last collection sui generis, Citizen is alive, not white, and not male, so you could read her and consider yourself to have done the bare minimum to fake being a cultured person in April.
