Poem of the Week
January 22, 2017 to January 29, 2017

david-kirby

from Americans in Italy
by David Kirby

The whole world is thinking a lot about Americans right now, isn't it? Although the Poem of the Week choices are scheduled well in advance of their online publication dates, the timing of this excerpt from David Kirby's poem "Americans in Italy", from his collection The Ha-Ha, is uncannily appropriate.
