Happy Friday (the 13th)!! One of my friends is celebrating her birthday today and another one is getting married! Hooray! My featured poem today is one written by Richard Brautigan, and appeared a few times when I was searching for poems about friendship. I discovered Brautigan’s poem via poets.org.
It was said that “much of the information regarding Richard Brautigan’s life and death is uncertain.” In 1972, he became a recluse and declined interviews and invitations to lecture. I can see how Brautigan’s life is reflected in his poem, Your Catfish Friend, but I also want to view it in a more positive and lighter perspective.
