Mutilation, or Day 9

It's not so much that I thought it was a great poem, just that I was thinking about modals. There are a couple really fabulous little moments. I don't really like the title or recurring line, except for how he changes it to require less and more of you as a reader. The New Yorker put this out after 9/11.

I gave a teacher an Allen Ginsberg poem today. I'll give you one later this week, don't worry.
