Default Maryann Corbett poem on American Life in Poetry today August 28, 2018


From her book Street View.

[My mistake in the thread title. The date should be August 27.]

Thanks for the shout-out, Woody. As I've said elsewhere, I owe thanks not only to Kooser for selecting the poem, but also to Alex for publishing Street View, to Measure for publishing the poem initially as a Nemerov finalist, and to my daughter for making me stay late at the State Fair years ago.

It's always a pleasure to read your work, Maryann. And it cheers me to think others get to do so – particularly if they are unfamiliar with it. Brava, and thanks Woody for the tip-off/

Fine sonnet! at once convivial and meditative. I love the rumination in the animation, as ‘they scream revolt at what the body knows.’ Congratulations, Maryann!

Loved getting that one in my inbox when I finally checked my mail after almost a month. Belated congrats. I've been on the island unplugged
