Poetry Friday: Lucky

October 16th, 2009

One book I just can’t read without tearing up is Love You Forever by Robert Munsch. Kafka said that literature should serve as an ax for the frozen sea within us. I can’t think of anything written more powerful than that book. Here is a poem from Tony Hoagland in a similar vein, and also a link to Munsch’s website: www.robertmunsch.com

Lucky
by Tony Hoagland

If you are lucky in this life,
you will get to help your enemy
