Eating Poetry
Poet Mary Oliver reads poems to her dog.

Poet Mary Oliver reads poems to her dog.

Have you ever listened to a poet read their poetry aloud? They almost never read with dramatic flair. It’s like watching a chef taste a half-cooked dish, slowly savoring every flavor while contemplating if it might need a pinch more cardamom, a dash of vanilla.

Poetry is one of the rare things I love that I haven’t tried to turn into a career. It’s one of the few luxuries I allow my creative self. Sure, I’ve written some poems I like, and viewing the world through a poet’s eyes comes naturally to me. But I know it’s not my calling. Still, that doesn’t stop poetry from calling out to me, the siren song of well-chosen words winding around my consciousness.

I love the perfect surprise of a good poem; the startling turn of phrase that thrusts you inside a moment, a feeling, time or place. Poetry feels anarchic: from incisive cuts to wild hacking away at language, it creates a new form of communication both intuitive and bold. Poets allow their thoughts to float lazily down rivers, to climb tall trees and get a peek at a different horizon. Then they catapult into that horizon, just to see what happens.

The first lines of Mark Strand’s poem “Eating Poetry” read:

Ink runs from the corners of my mouth
There is no happiness like mine
I have been eating poetry.

Look past my gleeful glance, the joyous smile. Is that an ink stain streaked across my cheek?
