WORDS ON A WIRE: Lee Herrick



   In a rebroadcast from Jan. 13, 2013, Daniel & Ben talk with Lee Herrick, whose latest collection of poems is “Gardening Secrets of the Dead.”  Herrick talks about his experience as a Korean adoptee, and how he became inspired to fill in the missing pieces of his life.

For the Poem of the Week, Herrick reads “Circle” from “Gardening Secrets of the Dead.”

This week’s Poetic License comes from Daniel Chacon.  In “Upside Down Broom,” he shares a memory from a relationship he had with a woman who was a complete contradiction to who he was at the time. 

Daniel & Ben also talk about whether they’ve already broken their New Year’s resolutions.
