Philip Appleman

A few hours before the bombing started, Garrison Keillor read Philip Appleman’s poem Last-Minute Message For A Time Capsule on National Public Radio. I’ve had a number of poems by Philip Appleman on this site for quite a while, and instead of suing me for copyright infringement as he has every right to, he was kind enough to email me this poem himself. His New And Selected Poems is pretty much impossible to find in bookstores here and Amazon UK doesn’t even stock it, but if you like what you’ve read on this site, I highly recommend you try getting your hands on a copy.
