“I forget who it was that recommended for their soul’s good to do each day two things they disliked. It was a wise man and it is a precept that I have followed scrupulously. For every day I have got up and I have gone to bed.”
Christopher Citro, an MFA student in the Indiana University Creative Writing Program, has poetry forthcoming in the Courtland Review and has been published recently in Harpur Palate, The Cincinnati Review, Poet Lore, and a number of other magazines. His poems have been featured on Verse Daily and nominated for a Pushcart Prize.
He reads his poems “Science Fiction Family,” “Emily, It’s Better This Way,” “Improving the Odds,” and “She Lifted Her Arms But Wasn’t Surrendering.”
As of January 2010, Citro will take the reins of The Poets Weave as Jenny Kander steps down after 11 years of producing and hosting.
