Bonus Track, “Man in Space,” Read by Billy Collins

I honestly cannot remember if I have shared this video with you before or not. So forgive me if you’ve already seen it, but I came across this poem again today from Billy Collins’ book The Art of Drowning, and that got me thinking of this video. I enjoy Billy’s reading of this, and the video matches it perfectly. Enjoy!

    1. Thanks, Charles! I should mention that I fixed the typo that you were too kind to mention. 🙂 I should also note that the book, The Art of Drowning was the first Collins volume I held in my hand. Not his first poems, but the first full book, and it might actually belong to a dear poet friend of mine from years ago whom I lost track of. So Charity, if you are reading this, I have your book! Actually, it’s just as possible that I picked up a copy myself after giving it back. I just don’t recall. Anyway, I added the link to Amazon in the post, but it’s one that you could probably easily get from a local bookstore too, which despite my love for the interwebs, is the way I prefer to do it.
