Saturday Good Reads


I’d never read a poem about a parking ticket, but Nick Maurer at Curator Magazine wrote one. Tim Good takes a photo of a single tulip, and it looks like a painting. Matt Appling finds the best way to miss out on your own life. A story in The New York Times finds something going badly wrong in both red and blue America. And a few of the houses that various writers in Britain lived in.

Good, thoughtful stuff this week.
