Wordy Wednesday – “Taking Off Emily Dickinson’s Clothes” by Billy Collins
Sorry I skipped Wordy Wednesday last week. I’ve been buried under schoolwork and it slipped my mind.
Today I have a short poem for you. I really like it – go check it out.
On subject matter alone, I’d probably really enjoy it. But Collins is a decent poet at the very least. The image of him “sailing toward the iceberg of her nakedness” is what sticks with me the most.
