Margaret Levine, “A Man I Knew”

Poetry and Philosophy....

Amplify’d from

“…in many liberal arts fields, the only possible consumer of the research in question is a handful of scholars in the same field.  That sort of research is valuable in the same way that children’s craft projects are priceless–to their mothers.  Basically, these people are supporting an expensive hobby with a sideline business certifying the ability of certain twenty-year olds to write in complete sentences.” – Megan McArdle

A Man I Knew

has a condo

a maid who comes

every other week

kids who won’t

are on the dresser

they float forever

like a boat
