Poetry Friday: Eating Poetry with Mark Strand

Today is the birthday of poet Mark Strand and I can't think of a better way to celebrate than to eat some poetry. For dessert, I'll go read this interview between Wallace Shawn and Strand at the Paris Review.

Eating Poetry 
by Mark Strand

Ink runs from the corners of my mouth.
There is no happiness like mine.
I have been eating poetry.

The librarian does not believe what she sees.

(Read the rest here.)


Michelle Heidenrich Barnes has the round-up at Today's Little Ditty.
