Episode 22: Kay Ryan, "Things Shouldn't Be So Hard"

This small lyric poem is a quiet yet ironic meditation on what's left after a life--specifically, the marks that should be there but that are not. It's a plainsong evocation of loss with a subtle ironic undertow, a beautifully said poem from one of the United States' best lyric poets.
