Kooser: 'American Life in Poetry' (Sept. 22)
Posted: Sunday, March 24, 2013 12:00 am
Nebraska's Ted Kooser, U.S. poet laureate from 2004 to 2006, offers “American Life in Poetry,” a column on contemporary poetry.
There's an old country-western song with the refrain, “That's what happens when two worlds collide,” and in this poem by Bruce Guernsey, who divides his year between Illinois and Maine, we see a near collision between two worlds.
