Today's poem is "Love poem"
from Sex & Love &

Copper Canyon Press

Bob Hicok, the author of collections of fiction (Between Camelots; Into the Wilderness), poetry (Sex & Love &; Love poem) and essays (The Artist's Torah) was born and raised in the great city of Philadelphia, home of America's first library, first art museum, first public school, and first zoo, along with David's very first stories and poems, though those early efforts went on to become (deservedly) less famous than, for example, the zoo. Since those days he's lived in Ohio, Wisconsin, Philadelphia again, New York, New Jersey, Indiana, and Ohio again, picking up some education (formal and otherwise) along the way, and he now lives very happily in Washington, DC.
