Read Traveler

Today I was going through our blogroll and stopping in to read some of our poets' work, when I came upon a poem that really struck me as remarkable. The tone of it is personal and confessional. It leaves you feeling like you crawled under the skin of the narrator.

Read Cry Me a Bridge by Traveler at The Forward Earth- something in another city and see if you enjoy it as much as I did.

Thank you so much for your kind words.

The lines "So if I cry you a river/Will you cry me a bridge" struck me as something I'd heard before, although I am certain I have not. I guess you'd call that resonance? They sound like lines that could become commonly quoted--widely known. Wonderful. Thanks for sharing this poem.
