Go Read Something!

I’m not much of a poetry person. It’s more often than not that poetry is confusing or sluggish to me as a reader. I enjoy it, but it’s not something I generally seek out to find.

Marianne Kunkel is the current managing editor of the University of Nebraska’s literary journal, The Prairie Schooner. When I had some recent interaction with her (she’s lovely, by the way), I sought out some of her poetry online. She’s quite talented, and one poem in particular left me in awe. There’s something so simple about this little poem, but it’s so strong. Enjoy!

“A Sloth First Hears Its Name,” by Marianne Kunkel
