Poetry: The Good Life by Theo LeGro

A tender record-keeping of the body and its ability to turn on its owner, Theo LeGro’s poem navigates a history that resists blame, that resists anger, but rather leans into what could have been–a life not marred by disease. And the poet here says it best, “Everything on earth yearns for the good life”.
