HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY from LARB Poetry! We’ve forgone the usual pipe cleaners, plastic googly eyes and Elmer’s glue and decided to send you a heart-shaped box full of poets talking about poems they love. Click on each “Valentine” and read and listen. Feel free to send these poems along to someone and to add your thoughts on a poem on our comments page. Though we have recently heard otherwise, poetry’s complicated heart keeps beating. It’s because of poets like these and readers like you. Thanks.
