This week’s New Favorite Poet is: Patricia Kirkpatrick

Now that National Poetry Month is over, and I was able to post something for (ALMOST) every day for the month of April, A Rhythm Runs Through It can get back to its usual “Rhythms”…

This week’s new favorite poet struck me with her beautiful series of three poems from the beginning of the April 2012 issue of Poetry magazine. They remind me of my “Disease Chronicles” (some of which I have posted on the blog). Read the following poems in order and you’ll see how they flow from one to the other (BRILLIANT!):

  1. Vision Test
  2. Survivor’s Guilt
  3. In Extremis

Each poem by itself is a glorious thing, but together, they are truly divine!
