Selecting a Reader — Ted Kooser

 

First, I would have her beautiful
and walking carefully up on my poetry
at the loneliest moment of an afternoon,
her hair still damp at the neck 
from washing it. She would be wearing
a raincoat, an old one, dirty
from not having money enough for the cleaners.
She will take out her glasses, and there
in the bookstore, she will thumb
over my poems, then put the book back
up on its shelf. She will say to herself,
"For that kind of money, I can get
my raincoat cleaned."
And she will.
