As promised last week, a second poem by Catherine Abbey Hodges.

An Algebra of Fifty

Out back between the marvelous
weeds and the volunteer tomatoes,

It is also Black History Month. Over at The Poetry Foundation is a long list of poems, articles and podcasts, all accessible with the click of a mouse.  Each day, the poem of the day is by an African American. No fanfare, just good poems. I appreciate that The Poetry Foundation continues this practice.

While there take a look at the site if you are not familiar with it--loaded with poems, biographies of the poets, essays and access to each month's edition of Poetry, cover to cover.
