For Day 10 of National Poetry Month, from a local, valley poet, and from american poets: The Journal of the Academy of American Poets, Spring-Summer 2016, and from The Darkening Trapeze.
from Ghazal / by Larry Levis
I remember how
My old psychiatrist would pinch his nose between
A thumb and forefinger, look up at me & sigh.
My old friend, Larry! As the years go on, his value to poetry continues to grow. Thank you, Michele, for posting this piece, and for honoring his memory.
