Lauded poet will speak at FOGPL meeting
Editor’s Note: The following poem is reprinted by permission from the author. Mr. Hoffman will be the guest speaker at the Friends of the Gleason Public Library’s Annual Meeting at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, November 7, in the Hollis Room.

not gray jelly like what wobbles in the skull
stick-man. In the heart the will is gristle.
that has no choice, that has to wrestle
