Billy Collins:Vade Mecum

A little while ago I sent out a call for recommendations to help me expand my poetic horizons. Billy Collins was one of the replies.  I find the below this week, and I can't stop reading it.


i want the scissors to be sharp
and the table perfectly level
when you cut me out of my life
and paste me in that book you always
carry.


--billy collins, "vade mecum"
