What poetry is …

 Solitary Praxis: "The Poet and the Golem" by Marly Youmans.

Even I am not so glib as to offer commentary on such as this after a single reading. This must be lived with for a while.


  1. Oh my goodness, do you think my posting (with the response and postscript) is insincere and shallow?

  2. Thanks to you both--sharing poems is a good thing!

  3. Hi Tim,
    My comment was solely about me. We journalists have an unfortunate tend Nicky to feel compelled to write something even before have thought things through (actually, we sometimes have to). But this poem resonates so deeply that I simply want to live be with it for a while.
