Welcome to Episode 10, in which we’ll invite you to “talk back to” Robert Bly’s poem, “People Like Us.”
As we discussed in Episode 3, talking back to a poem involves responding to a word, phrase, image, metaphor, sound, line or the poem as a whole, and beginning your own poem in response. Select anything that resonates with you and begin to write. Your poem need not be anything like the poem to which you’re responding.
