Poetry Friday, man oh man Brautigan


With his hat on
he's about five inches taller
than a taxicab.

I am posting Brautigan's "Man" in celebration of the end of the week's grading and in honor of the one student who kept referring to Man--Man's universe, Man's nature, the virtues of Man, the vices of Man--in his essay. I kept wanting to write in the margins, "Who is this 'Man' fellow you speak of?", but leaving this poem as a comment would have worked beautifully as well.
