The Poor
by Spencer Reece

"The Poor" is a spare and heartbreaking poem from Spencer Reece's collection The Road to Emmaus, which was shortlisted for the 2015 Griffin Poetry Prize. Learning more about what inspired Reece to translate the poem from Roberto Sosa's original 1969 poem in Spanish, “Los Pobres”, helps explain why the poem demands our attention with its deceptively understated beauty.
