Poem for Your Pocket, and for Boston

To Run, prayer for Boston by Scott Poole

EIL poet Scott Poole is also a runner, and he’s written a poem in response to the Boston Marathon explosions and in honor of the resilient spirit. You can read it above, and also here, at WBUR, Boston’s National Public Radio station, on the Here & Now show with Robin Young, where you can also hear it.

It’s Poem for Your Pocket Day, so this is a poem for your virtual pocket, the pocket of your listening ear, a pocket in your heart. Thank you, Scott Poole.
