Waxing Thunderously Poetic

‘He asks me if I believe in angels, and before I realize I don’t have the heart to tell him, I tell him, “Not lately.”‘

The title of this wonderful poem by Shane Koyczan is The Crickets Have Arthritis, and it was performed live at the 2007 Words Aloud Festival. Its content is about the poet having a conversation with a 9-year-old boy dying from cancer.

It’s a little bit of magic to remind us how wondrous life can be, no matter the circumstances.
