the fine print April 2010: swimsuit edition

Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition 2010

Okay now, I’ve hoodwinked you. I’ll admit it. There are no slinky young things in barely there bikinis (except for wee Brooklyn Decker, so not a total ripoff). But the thing is, Billy Collins writes poems as much for Sports Illustrated model Brooklyn Decker as for you. He rails against archaic poetry written by academics for academics. He writes poetry for Brooklyn and you. And now you’ve found him. Click to hear Billy read his poem The Lanyard. It’s part of a series of brief spots that PBS is featuring throughout the month of April, which just happens to be Poetry Month.

I guarantee The Lanyard will make you laugh. And not a snooty laughing over a snifter of brandy in the drawing room kind of laugh. A real belly laugh. Or I’ll buy. Just not a snifter of brandy. Promise.
