Poem of the Week, Mar. 16-22


            ~Yusef Komunyakaa, Magic City (Wesleyan, 1992)


I really did love this book, and I feel really bad because Yusef just had a reading with Rodney Jones out in Pasadena that I forgot to tell my brother Josh Mossotti about.  It’s a damn shame too, because Rodney said it was a great time—said Yusef got him drinking bourbon.
