If I Were to Meet Walt Whitman, What I Would Ask
Did you know they named a bridge after you?
What do you think of Camden today?
What was it like being a Civil War nurse?
How did you deal with being gay in the 19th Century?
What was Oscar Wilde like?
Who were your favorite poets?
When did you decide not to rhyme?
What do you think of rap?
Where did you like to go for dinner?
Did your beard get itchy in the summer?
Where did you get that floppy hat?
Why did you only write one book of poetry?
Can I get your autograph?
Then he'd sign my copy of Leaves of Grass,
and show me the door.
