Minnesota's Own John Caddy Reads in Minneapolis
There was a nice crowd for the poet tonight at the "Literary Witnesses" series at Plymouth Congregational Church. Here are a few lines from "Feathered Ears," which appears in With Mouths Open Wide: New and Selected Poems (Milkweed):
Owl's hunt is so still that when I see a talon flex
I almost hear long hoarfrost crystals
break and sift to ground.
Thank you, John, for three decades of more beauty than we can hold.
