Why wild birds alight on your shoulder, wild fish swim into your cupped hands

 

Star-Gazer

 

The very stars are justified.

The galaxy

italicized.

 

I have proofread

and proofread

the beautiful script.

 

There are no

errors.

 

~ P. K. Page (1916-2010)

 

Short Lecture In the Form of A Course Description

My idea for a class is, you just sit in a classroom and read aloud until everyone is smiling. And then, you look around. And if someone is not smiling, you ask them why? And then you keep reading. It may take many different books, until they start smiling, too.

~ Mary Ruefle (b.1952), poet and professor of literature and creative writing
