    GOING PUBLIC 3.8.13 - "Carrefour," by Amy Lowell
    http://www.poetryfoundation.org/poem/240272

    There's something amazing about a poem that can reach you inside of one sentence (or in the case of audio, 24 seconds) and Amy Lowell is one of the masters of it. So often, I find one of her almost micro-poems to be more powerful than poems that paint complete pictures, over many lines.

    Or, I could just have a short attention span...

    Regardless, Lowell manages to encapsulate an entire relationship arc, all levels of it, in this one sentence. And I stand in awe of her ability to do so.

    Imagine the tweets she might have sent...
