Joseph Legaspi: American Life in Poetry

Woo hoo!

Joseph Legaspi's poem, "At the Bridal Shop" was chosen for former Poet Laureate Ted Kooser as this week's selection for American Life in Poetry. From the Web site:

American Life in Poetry: Column 210
BY TED KOOSER, U.S. POET LAUREATE


My father was the manager of a store in which chairs were strategically placed for those dutiful souls waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting for shoppers. Such patience is the most exhausting work there is, or so it seems at the time. This poem by Joseph O. Legaspi perfectly captures one of those scenes.

Current readership for the column is 4,000,000 globally. You can read the poem on the American Life in Poetry site.

Hope this isn't a spoiler, but the person Joseph accompanied to David's Bridal is this one.
