170th Virtual Poetry Circle

Welcome to the 170th Virtual Poetry Circle!

Remember, this is just for fun and is not meant to be stressful.

Keep in mind what Molly Peacock’s books suggested. Look at a line, a stanza, sentences, and images; describe what you like or don’t like; and offer an opinion. If you missed my review of her book, check it out here.

Also, sign up for the 2012 Fearless Poetry Reading Challenge because its simple; you only need to read 1 book of poetry. Please visit the stops on the 2012 National Poetry Month Blog Tour.

Today’s poem is from Carsten René Nielsen from House Inspections:

Mail (page 61)

After an acquaintance remarked that a certain, newly erected building
looks like a piece of set design, the mailman, more and more, has
entertained the possibility that there's nothing on the other side of the
house fronts, no floors either, but that the letters, as soon as they have
disappeared through the letter flaps, continue their fall downwards,
whirling through an all-engulfing darkness.

What do you think?
