A conversation......................

..........in poetry between Ted Kooser and Jim Harrison.  Back story is here.

The Great Gourmand rows his boat
all day on a peanut butter sandwich
and warm water.

At my age
even in airports,
why would you wish
time to move faster?

The clock stopped at 5:30 for three months.
Now it's always time to quite work,
have a drink, cook dinner.

The butterfly
jots a note on the wind
to remind itself of something.

How can it be
that everyone my age
is older than I?

Twisted my ankle
until it's blue.
Now I can feel my heart
beating in my foot.

As excerpted from Braided Creek:  A Conversation in Poetry
