I loved the interview with Elizabeth Alexander and woke up inspired to write down a few poems I have been carrying along in my mind-- and, especially with all the acrimony coming out of Washington, I have been so despondent about human conversations. This piece lifted me back up. I loved the notion of poems being a poor person's artform. I would add that it is the busy person's means to express the soul, too. It made me wonder if there is a compendium of Tweet Poems. It might be an interesting follow-up, or a link or an idea. Let me not close without telling you that your program has inspired me weekly. It helps me find my better self and connect with others in a more wholesome way. Thank you.
