Talk to me nicely and I’ll listen

I like poetry done in a conversational style such as those written by Billy Collins, Ted Kooser, and Raymond Carver. I don’t mind listening when they take the time to say something well.

I don’t know why this is a poetry day, as was yesterday. Why isn’t it a math, philosophy, or novel day? Everything about my life seems driven by a mood of some sort. That’s about all I can figure. I’m definitely in a listening mood today.
