My favorite poem. This is a tough one. I have sentimental favorites, specific author favorites, and other subcategories. "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" is my top choice. As a teenager, I read this one over and over again. Each time I read it I discovered new meaning. Lovely music...

Would his ghost have stood waiting near the coffee maker among neon lights for his post-dinner beverage? The news that Mirza Ghalib's haveli (mansion), which was restored only 10 years ago, was used for a wedding reception is rather appalling. Imagine people in their finery jostling among the poet...
