KWH Pick of the Week: “Bedside” by William Olsen, Chosen by Paula Cisewski

Posted on March 12, 2012


Knox Writers’ House Contributor’s Pick of the Week 3/12/2012

Bedside by William Olsen in Kalamazoo, MI

Chosen by Paula Cisewski in Minneapolis/St. Paul who says:

It is a sweet dilemma to choose one recording from this gorgeous assemblage. Finally, I have chosen “Bedside” by William Olsen. I can’t say anything good enough about the deeply devoted cause and effect of this poem; so instead, I’ll suggest Knox House visitors do as I did: listen to it, then listen to it, then listen again.
