Frozen Memories

Last night we experienced the lowest low in a couple of years. Today the high hit about freezing. I worked hard and smart at work.

On Facebook, one of my cool friends is running a "comment for a poet" post. She's very cool for a number of reasons, not least because she makes the poet optional, and does not saddle you with one just by your hitting "like". I am not going to ask for a poet, but instead will talk here about one of my favorite poems. It's by a poet who was in vogue decades ago then out of vogue then in again and now out again. But I live a post-vogue life.
