Tuesday Poem: “Bamboo Poem” by Dave Snyder

“Bamboo Poem” by Dave Snyder (PDF).

Charlotte Simmonds sent me a link to Snyder’s fantastic poem that appeared in The Iowa Review. I haven’t got permission to use the poem on my blog, so I’m posting the link. The poem is seven pages long, and it earns it’s length. I’d be interested to hear other reader’s ideas about the poem. For me it is both a disenchanted love poem and a poem with environmental commentary.
