Billy Collins – 2 poems at the White house

These 6 minutes with Billy Collins are gently amusing and real and affectionate.  They are life and art in conversation – and it’s chat rather than an academic highbrow discussion.

By the way – do not adjust the lighting on your set – the poet begins to speak in deep darkness until someone appears to put another 50p in the meter at the White House, and the lights fade up.
