Poem A Day/ April 14th, 2012 – Linda Amundson


 Windows by Billy Collins.

 Doors by Carl Sandberg.

 Rooftops by Timothy Steel .

 I could build a house of poetry

in the kitchen where my

heart dwells.


The smell of Phil Levine’s

Salami rises above

Elizabeth Bishop’s The Fish

and Gelett Burgess’s

Purple Cow.


The hard dry peppery casing

Levine stuffed with

nasty bits

compressed into

a savory homage to life

leaves an aftertaste

everywhere so compelling

I want to grind my own salami.
