matt hart poetry poem writing literature writers books

Today I read the work of poet Matt Hart for the first time, prompted by an article in the Huffington Post.  The article is a winding defense of contemporary American poetry. No doubt a valiant and valuable cause, but one whose defense could have used the help of an editor friend.

Regardless, the article is worth reading as, somewhere in the middle, the author mentions several incredible poets whose poems were new to me.

I found this one in the generous online home of a publication called InDigest. To read the other four poems by Hart on their site, click here.
