Rod Stewart on the Radio

Driving to the library today, I heard Rod Stewart’s song “Maggie May” on the radio, turning it on right as he sang, “Maggie, I wish I’d never seen your face.” it’s probably just a coincidence, but it reminded me so much of Carl Sandburg’s poem “Mag”, which I wrote about recently. It’d be nice to live in a world where pop stars regularly make allusions to the poetry of socialists, with the audience actually understanding it.
