Suitabilities and possibilities.

there is something terribly wrong with me. I don't like poetry. If you read it to me, I get it. But I can't read it to myself.

Except Mary Oliver. Thank you!

There's nothing wrong with you. I also have to hear most poetry to love it. I can get it on an academic level--can teach it, can turn it inside out and see how it works and even spot some of its beauties. But if I hear it, I often get enraptured.

But this poem turned up in the New Yorker at the end of a semi-rotten year and I loved it right away and now I have it back, so I wanted to share. Glad you liked it too.
