Normally on Poetry Friday I peruse my bookshelves and find something I want to share. Here's what my office looks like right now.
Our building is being renovated this summer, so this means I must pack up so that carpet and windows can be replaced, walls can be painted, and much more. WHAT A PAIN!
I am in serious withdrawl without my books! What you are looking at is 26 boxes of books, and my office is only about 60% packed! Since I'm teaching math this summer, I have stubbornly refused to touch these materials. I'll need to find a home for them since I will need them for class. But alas, all my poetry has been boxed. I miss it terribly.
This means you get something a little different from me today. Here's Taylor Mali performing Undivided Attention.
Now that you've heard it, read the poem in its entirety.
The roundup today is being hosted by Irene Latham at Live Your Poem. Do stop by and take in all the wonderful poetry being shared this week. Happy poetry Friday all!
