Ada Limón reads from her poem "Marketing Life for Those of Us Left."

Transcript

Ada Limón: This is a poem I wrote for my friend Jess who died of cancer before reaching her 32nd birthday. We worked together in the magazine world, and I actually had to work in her office after she had died. I took her office over. It was very interesting.

So this is for Jess: "Marketing Life for Those of Us Left."
