Being at the Whim of Words by Matthew Rodgers

Being at the Whim of Words

I’m tired of being at
the whim of words

I want to break them open
and see what’s inside

~ Matthew Rodgers

Mathew has an MFA in Poetry from the New School and has been taught by such poets as Philip Levine and
Robert Polito and David Lehman who said of him:
“His work shows a real talent, he has a lot to say, he’s got
the news.” Robert Polito, said: Such a potent new voice in poetry. I feel like he builds his poems for the sky.”
