Poem In Your Pocket Day, Akron Style
When the students arrive at class, they will see this stunning display.
Oh! Now it all makes sense. But which one to pick? They're all so good.
Poems, like this one by Wayne Miller, can be found at Verse Daily. I printed up enough for the whole class.
What's in your pocket today? I still haven't decided. It's hard to choose just one, but I will.
Edited to add: I have made my selection! Currently in my pocket is the poem "Gift" by Heather Derr-Smith, from The Bride Minaret, forthcoming from the University of Akron Press. It feels like this entire manuscript is in my pocket--these are poems that you just can't shake.
