Wait – Galway Kinnell (2 mins)

The poet wrote this poem for a student contemplating suicide after a failed love affair.

For some unknown reason, the runup to the poetry reading has a distracting phistly white noise sound – but persevere, the poet and his reading are crystal clear, thankfully.

One of the strengths of poetry is its compactness for conveying deep vision, truth and – well, life.  There is an astonishment of ideas in these brief 2 minutes.
