Conversation with my friend, J, in her kitchen on Wednesday night:
JH: How many poems do you read a day?
JH: That’s it?
PT: Oh wait! I changed my email settings for the Library of Congress Poetry 180 project. I used to get the weekly digest, but I get those poems every day. Or whenever the government sends them out.
J continues potting her winter bulbs.
PT reads “The Centurion Divulges More“
PT: Oh yeah, I’ve got the Poetry Daily app on my phone. They post a new poem everyday, but sometimes I don’t remember to check and end up reading a week’s worth of poems on the bus.
JH: Is that it?
PT: Well, there’s always whatever poetry book I’m reading now.
