“Sure,” by Arlene Tribbia (Guest Reader!)

December 20, 2010

Today’s poem robbed the town’s only hotdog stand.

When Manila Hang was “in the studio” to record her own poems for us last week, she chose today’s as a favorite she had discovered during the semester of Writing and Reading Poetry.  (OK, we were in a classroom with a laptop, but–“in the studio”–I’ve always wanted to say that.  Without the quotation marks, even.  If I were offered Dick Gordon’s job helming The Story, I’d have to think about leaving teaching for that.)

This is a good one–thanks, Manila.

Manila read Arlene Tribbia’s “Sure” from the website Poetry 180 where Billy Collins “make[s] it easy for students to hear or read a poem on each of the 180 days of the school year.”  “Sure” was first published in Margie: The American Journal of Poetry in 2004.
