Poems for 4/2 & 4/3

Our national poetry month poems for today and yesterday are both rather short and both from Richard Brautigan. You can read about him here. He is pretty wonderful. He was born January 30th, 1935 and died September 14, 1984. His poems are gems that were ahead of their time.

TWO poems by RICHARD BRAUTIGAN from "The Pill versus the Springhill Mine Disaster"


With his hat on
he's about five inches taller
than a taxicab.

Sir Comma and Creeley Comma

It's spring and the nun
like a black frog
builds her tarpaper shack
beside the lake.
How beautiful she is
(and looks) surrounded
by her rolls of tarpaper.
They know her name
and they speak her name.
