The Office Hour, Chapter 16: “Poetry”

This week, Toby and I read and discuss some of our favorite poems: William Wordsworth’s “We Are Seven,” Frank O’Hara’s “Having a Coke with You,” Lucille Clifton’s “shapeshifter poems,” and George Saunder’s “Trump l’oeil.” Plus: an inordinately long intro about the Oscars and parenthood.

The podcast can be played using the embedded player above or downloaded as an mp3 file.

Music: Jean-Joseph Mouret, “Rondeau,” from Sinfonie de Fanfares (1729). Creative Commons, used under academic fair use for noncommercial purposes.
