national poetry month

It's Short Story Month -- and these make for great lunch break reads.
How do you draw the line between not wanting to live anymore and wanting to die?
Happy National Poetry Month!
Poet and editor Matthew Zapruder says poetry doesn’t have to be so inaccessible.
Poetry is how we say to the world, and to each other, "I am here." Some of my most beloved poets -- Walt Whitman, Langston Hughes, Billy Collins and Naomi Shihab Nye -- talk about poetry as a way to document the world and our common experiences, to say what needs to be said in a direct, powerful and beautiful way.
