Celebrate Pi Day!

March 14 (3/14) is Pi Day! We may think of it as more of a mathematical than literary day, but why not both? Song & Dread by Dorothy Livesay Poetry Prize–winner Otoniya J. Okot Bitek features a section of Pi Day poems.

From “Pi Day 8”

“six days since i wore earrings
but the garbage was picked up
the gardens outside are still manicured
& cherry blossoms are outrageous in their fullness”

Check out Song & Dread here. Happy Pi Day!
