Happy Labor Day!


Celebrate the workers of the world with the Poetry Foundation’s list of “poems reflecting on work, responsibility, and the end of summer.”

The post includes links to audio recordings of readings and interviews, as well as a few analytical articles, for a full appreciation of labor, both literary and not.

Here’s hoping you have the day off work to eat barbecue, drink beer, and read the Rumpus.
