Poem of the Week: "That Light One Finds in Baby Pictures," by Jay Hopler

I've been a big Jay Hopler fan ever since I saw him do a reading at my alma mater a few years ago.  He was a great reader and very friendly when he signed my copy of his book, Green Squall, which won the Yale Younger Series prize in 2005.  Hot weather like we had up here today always makes me think of Hopler, who lives in Florida.  Most of his poems have that sticky, humid feeling to them.  Here's one I like quite a lot.  Enjoy!
