I’ve read that poetry is considered to be the most solitary of arts, composed alone and often consumed that way as well. 

Galway Kinnell is a rock star in my poetry universe. I plan to make a simple yet subtle bowl of oatmeal (with skim milk, of course) and listen, yet again, to his historical/hysterical poem.
