Episode 63: Work, And What It Is

March 22, 2022

You know by now that poets can turn their eyes and pens to the ordinary as well as the sublime... but how many poems have you read about WORK? Keith Hansen brings us three of those today.

I'm a little jealous that Keith beat me to sharing "What Work Is" by Philip Levine. That one's a mysterious gem. 


Clemens Starck "Slab on Grade"

Philip Levine "What Work Is"

Marge Piercy "To Be Of Use"
