Yet another recommendation from Austin Kleon’s Newsletter. This time a bit more modern. Published in 2013 it still rings very true. The struggle is real. The never-ending advice on “How to be Perfect” is captured by Ron Padgett. It reads like a list of every self-help piece of advice you’ve ever received.
As I can’t just copy the poem into the post. I have embedded the poem as it is published on poetry foundation’s website.
