On April 25 (World Malaria Day) I spoke to teacher @autumnrose32's brilliant students at Cape Hatteras Secondary School using @appear_in. We covered journalism, travel, MMA, poetry and of course my book Malaria, Poems.

And today in the mail I received these heartfelt thank you cards! Super cool! Feeling poetically rejuvenated! Deepest bows to you all!

We carry great poems with us — sometimes fully in memory but all times by living the traces of insight they instilled within us. They are practical, built things. If you haven’t read much from Sharon Olds, I recommend beginning with her book “Strike Sparks.”

There’s so much truth to this. Perspectives shift, senses awaken. How to maintain this heightened awareness and curiosity with the world around us? This is where I find most poets and writers struggling. Believe this: Writer’s block doesn’t exist, but curiosity block can stop us in our tracks. And love keeps us curious.

How to describe the way poetry moves you, shakes you up, makes you finally notice something you’ve been looking at your entire life? How to describe that precise moment in the reading process when a certain passage or even a few crisp lines makes you feel like the way you view the world has just been flipped upside down? *
