THIS WORLD IS NOT ALTOGETHER BAD 



Watch Mike Hazard read at Common Good Books.

Read a poem from a new book by Hazard.

BLESSED FOR LIFE
A wild-looking man I don’t know
from Adam begged a ride from the PO
to the Dorothy Day Center. He’s jazzed,
jazzed about a Thanksgiving feast.
With a shock of hair like a thundercloud,
he looks like an old Testament prophet.
He got out and paused next to the window.
Standing so I can’t see his face, I was
blessed for life when a rich voice said,
“This world is not altogether bad.”

Hazard is artist in residence at our Center for International Education. Please consider purchase of the book from Red Dragonfly Press.

It’s a collection of poems about people. The writer Freya Manfred writes, “I love the often playful, musical quality which enhances the vital/vivid images of each praise-worthy person. These people are real and the poetry honors them. The poems play off each other well—father, mother, old-timer, uncles—quite wonderful all together in this world, as the book surely lives up to its title.”

Here are more ways to hear Hazard read:
