Robert Pinsky will forever be cool in my books ever since he appeared in the "Little Girl in the Big Ten" episode of The Simpsons. Anyway, while I was surfing the interweb, I found a video of Pinsky reciting the poem "Samurai Song" - in an elevator for some reason, courtesy of Poetry International. You know what would have made it even cooler? If the vid had Pinsky brandishing a sword, dressed in full Samurai garb, and was fending off an army of ninjas. That would have been sweet.
See the video of Pinsky reciting the poem here.
