Some things you know all your life. They are so simple and true they must be said without elegance, meter and rhyme…they must be naked and alone, they must stand for themselves.
Happy 88th birthday, Philip Levine! The former Poet Laureate of the United States started out with factory jobs at Cadillac and Chevrolet, then went on to write poetry about working-class Detroit.
All My Best,
