Online Poetry Collections
In addition to an artist’s profile, the Poetry Foundation features close to three dozen poems by A.F. Moritz, including “Better Days,” “Essential Poem,” and “You That I Loved.” The essay, “What Man Has Made of Man: Can Poetry Reconnect the Individual and Society?” is among the four prose pieces. And, an audio recording of “The Jar” (read by Michael Stuhlbarg) sampled below, rounds out the list.
