Novelist Colson Whitehead Pens TV Poetry

whitehead2.jpgAt last week’s Happy Ending reading series, novelist Colson Whitehead suggested a new series of pop culture poetry: “Tony Danza Miracles: Haiku Inspired By Popular Television Programs.”

At the urging of author Maud Newton, the novelist revealed one haiku on Twitter. Here’s a poem for the hero of 24: “Release Jack Bauer! / Quickly they reconsider / Arrest Jack Bauer!”

GalleyCat asked Whitehead if readers could look for more pithy TV poems, and the novelist responded in less than 140-characters: “Glad you enjoyed the tv haiku. The muse is elusive since the recession, tho. Subway ‘really adds up,’ she says.”
