For today's Poetry Friday, I offer a poem by David Ignatow. He writes about everyday things in a direct manner, which I really appreciate. This is for all you book lovers and writers all there.
Against the evidence
by David Ignatow
The following passage comes in the middle:
All my life
I've held books in my hands
like children, carefully turning
their pages and straightening out
their creases. I use books
almost apologetically. I believe
I often think their thoughts for them.
Reading, I never know where theirs leave off
and mine begin.
Read the poem here.
Then head on over to Two Writing Teachers for the Roundup.
