Back when I was taking every poetry class that would let me in, we read The Poetry Home Repair Manual by Ted Kooser which is surprisingly good for its cheesy title and cover. There is a poem in its pages that has taken on near mythical proportions for the people in that class, so much so that there was talk of getting tattoos of this poem. I think you’ll see why.
