Stephen King gets poetic

Tin House, the Brooklyn- and (other)Portland-based quarterly literary publication, is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year (much like another icon of words and culture!). Its celebratory issue, on the shelves now (Longfellow Books has one or two copies left, at last check), is a modern literature geek's dream -- David Foster Wallace's first-ever published story!; new works from Aimee Bender, Amy Hempel, and Lydia Davis!; filmmaker Jon Raymond on Saul Bellow; Francine Prose on the 1970s; and (and here we come to the relevance) poetry by Stephen King, who rarely writes in verse. The poem, "Mostly Old Men," is a meditation on age, companionship, and loneliness.
