I enjoy Kristen Hoggatt’s “Ask a Poet” column at The Smart Set, an online revival of the old magazine. One can dive in anywhere and be entertained and enlightened by her approach to life through poetry.
The current question someone has asked the poet is timely, coming straight from the headlines. More, it’s relevant to Hoggatt’s personal life, as she relates. Words matter, she reminds us, and convincingly illustrates this conviction with an Emily Dickinson poem.
