Jim Thompson’s Spiritual Poetry Class #31
December 2, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
This week’s poems are:
“What You Missed That Day You Were Absent from Fourth Grade” by Brad Aaron Modlin. Wouldn’t we all like to have had a teacher like Mrs. Nelson with English and math lessons that we all need to embrace.
“Calling Him Back from Layoff” by Bob Hicock. The poem begins, “I called a man today…” and by the time the poet tells us, “…he began to cry…” I was also bawling.
“The Muse is a Little Girl” by Marjorie Saiser. Reminds me so much of the hymn, “Come and See,” that describes
“A still small voice deep inside
And a voice still ringing in my ear…”
It’s been said that a test of intelligence is being able to hold two diametrically opposed ideas in one’s head at the same time without having your head explode. “The Muse is a Little Girl” may require us to get smarter! It is indeed a poem strong enough to bear armor!
