Join me, Mark Scarbrough, as I explore this poem from a working poet, Tamara Madison: "What Now Is Like."
It's a gentle exploration of the experience of the "now," the only way it can be experienced, in metaphor--and together. It's a poem that becomes quantum, becomes its own "now," and offers us a way to stop time, the one thing "now" can never offer us.
This is a great poem for the coming end of the pandemic. It's full of hope. Full of linguistic pyrotechnics. And full of now.
