“And it was at that age… poetry arrived / in search of me”-Pablo Neruda, “Poetry”
Poems can represent a turning point. Reading Marvin Bell’s “Wednesday” was one such moment for me. I wrote about what it means to me, and why it really matters, for the Prague-based online journal B O D Y. I consider it the anthem of every working poet, and it was to this anthem that I marched forward through grief, back into poetry, back into life.
