April 13, 2012: Poems I Love, Part Five

[I’m spending much of my blog-time this week working on a new writing project, about which more to come soon (when details become more finalized). So in honor of National Poetry Month, I’m going to highlight one amazing American poem per day this week, say one thing about why I love it, and then hope that you’ll a) read and enjoy; and b) share your own nominations in comments!]

Ian Williams’

“Not Saying” (2007)

On this Friday the 13th, I note one of the many ways in which I’ve been very lucky over the last ten years: getting to work alongside the amazing and talented Ian Williams.

Wrap-up post this weekend,

Ben

PS. Last request—favorite American poems (or poets)?!

4/13 Memory Day nominees: Thomas Jefferson and Nella Larsen—not just as a tie, but as a very complicatedly and appropriately matched American pair.
