3.25.18 In the Running

James Thurber said, “All men should strive to learn before they die, what they are running from, and to, and why.” And that’s what our poets strive to do in this week’s show: take a hard look at the why, the how, and the where of running. So, run like the wind to catch this week’s melodically challenged, where yesterday’s poetry comes alive and today’s poetry rocks!
