Monday March 28 — A Review of the Work Day/Hard Time poetry list
I didn’t write Friday’s post thinking of it as a bridge blending Good Friday’s attention to violence and Easter’s attention to rebirth, but it turned out that way. You may find some blessings re-reading from Friday or, if you were fasting from digital media, reading Friday for your first time.
Just below is a new element for the list, a review of numbers and addresses.
Back Wednesday with the ordinary format.
Pre-note 2: Some readers do not know how to access the Work Day/Hard Time archive blog. All 339 posts are archived in reverse chronological order (most recent on top); all words (poets’ names, words in titles, words in text) are searchable. Each month’s posts are clustered in case you’d like to browse a particular time of year. Blog protocols allow a more attractive format. Pictures are sharper, so is the text. URL for the Archive Blog: https://sites.udmercy.edu/poetry
Original rationale: “In easy times you don’t have to be so careful about your language, you will spontaneously find playful words, wise with kindness. In hard time[s] it helps to pay attention to word choices.”
