Christmas Morning...

This morning I was working out and reading poetry between sets. Billy Collins. My favorite poet.

When I went to take a shower and turned on my shower radio, the Diane Rehm show was on NPR. And as luck would have it (thank you, whomever is in charge of my luck up there), she was talking about poetry. Billy Collins was on her show. I felt like a kid on Christmas morning!

My mom and I absolutely love Billy Collins! What a lucky thing to get to hear him interviewed. I heard him on NPR quite a few years ago. His poems are so wonderfully human.

Agreed. He's sort of my poetry role model. I love a poem that says what it says and doesn't distract me with a thousand words that don't have any reason to be there.
