Miracle Glass Co.

For week 11 of my year long recitation project I recite a poem by Charles Simic. Miracle Glass is a perfect poem; a poet seeing exactly and sharing it simply.

Hello, I'm Abby Smith. I started this blog in 2010 to write about the pursuit of a self-sustainable life in rural Mexico. In 2015, my then-husband and I moved to Nicaragua, where we created a successful farm-to-table and in-house charcuterie program for a high-end beach resort. In 2022, with mad butchery and cheese-making skills under my belt, I started a sustainable food systems consulting business. Happily, I also have more time for my first love-- writing about food and the complexities of the simple life.

  1. I wasn’t familiar with that poem, thanks for the introduction. It was funny to hear you recite without the accompanying pigs and birds…. I’ve gotten used to their poetic chorus, haha!

  2. That’s wonderful! I miss my birds too, though there are plenty here, but the house is so massive you don’t hear them inside except at night. I love Charles Simic. This poem is from A Wedding in Hell. His work is generally more abstract; I’ve been trying to stick with poems that are easier to follow since I’m reciting. His imagery is so challenging, he is carnal, innocent. Definitely worth a peek. But perhaps, you are familiar with him, just not that poem?

  3. I love the thought of the images appearing but never again in the same way. Such great images too. I’ll have to check out more of his poems – thank you!
