A poem by Philip Metres in The New York Times

Congratulations to Northeast Ohio's own Philip Metres, whose poem "Ode to the Oranges of Jaffa" was selected by Naomi Shihab Nye to be featured in this week's New York Times Magazine

If you like that,  I recommend you check out his most recent book (in which the poem also appears): Shrapnel Maps (Copper Canyon Press, 2020).
