“To John Donne,” by Michael Symmons Roberts

October 20, 2010

This poem? Its breast’s curve has a patent.

The John Donne Roberts is writing to is the John Donne who wrote this hot little number 350-ish years ago.  Like the other poems this week, “To John Donne” is in Michael Symmons Roberts’ book, Corpus (Cape Poetry, 2004).

    This is some week! I am enjoying M.S.Roberts’ poems. They’re lively, a bit trippy and seem to ask for closer listening and consideration. Thanks for posting!
