In honor of National Poetry Month, we will be spotlighting one poem each Friday from our Audio Archives.
Today’s feature is John Randolph Carter’s “Luggage” from Issue 25.1. A dizzying blend of quirk and wisdom, each thought in “Luggage” lies somewhere between aphorism and one-liner. Pick a few to pocket–our current favorite is “Dull spurs make a dull cowboy,” although the mental image of Patsy Cline needling out a mean argyle also has its appeal. Take a listen!
Feel free to visit our archives for another flight of fancy courtesy of John Randolph Carter, and be sure to pop in next Friday for a new selection.
