Oo poetry!

So I was driving home from one of my interactive corporate mystery events in San Ramon when City Arts and Lectures popped on the radio with a live performance of poet Billy Collins, perfectly timed with my 45 minute drive home.

I thought his work was witty with beauty that sneaks up and shocks you when you least expect it. Crystal, cutting, completely uninflected and with great timing.

It was a pleasant drive home. Much better than BBC news or energy 92.7 (i think i need to take a few month break from Energy so they can refresh their stable with 5 or 6 new songs)

I really liked this poem about tension
