It's #NationalPoetryDay folks! Since Larry King has interviewed pretty much everyone that you can think of, naturally he interviewed U.S. Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera on #PoliticKING. The U.S. Poet Laureate is someone who's officially appointed by the government to compose poems for special events and occasions... basically he's a BIG DEAL and he's really workin' that beige fedora if you ask me.
Best part of the interview- Juan writes a poem dedicated to Larry, obviously Larry starts cheesin' from ear to ear...
Even better part of the story, Juan Felipe Herrera is the first Latino person to be named the U.S. Poet Laureate which is amazing and makes me very happy. I can already guess what Larry would say about that... "it's about time!"
Juan Felipe Herrera's poem for Larry King:
It is the Vision Thru the Television
for Larry King, with admiration.
It is the vision
thru the television
that Larry King sees
well —sky, earthquake
geyser of the eye,that is,
the kiss —Marlon
Brando —in everyone
all of us that he sees —
before you see it
before we see it
but Larry sees it coming
then he asks you —
well —so what is
