A while back, I signed up for a poem a week by email from Poetry International Web; it’s “Poem of the Week” in my Bloglines account. This week’s poem was by Gieve Patel, and was interesting enough that I went and read a few more. I was really taken with this one:
It makes sense not
to have the body
hermetically sealed, a
box of incorruptibles.
Better shot through and through!
