City poetry at TWA

The Writer's Almanac hosted by Garrison Keillor on public radio in the States has featured two wonderful poems about cities yesterday and today. Tuesday's "New York" by Edward Field was a revelation to me. Never heard of the guy before but will definitely look his work up. I've discovered so many superb poets from south of the border through TWA (Heather McHugh is a favourite.) Keillor has also read plenty of Canadian poetry including works by Robyn Sarah and Eric Ormsby. Here's the web link to Field's poem.
