Review of "08/22/08" by David Lehman

Editor's Note:  My apologies for the tardiness of this post.  I have been out of town and away from my computer and internet access.

"08/22/08" by David Lehman was offered by Poets.org's Poem-A-Day on August 22, 2013, the anniversary of the birth of Claude Debussy (pictured).  The poet reveals in his notes that he was inspired by Debussy's Rhapsody for Saxophone and Orchestra, time, and numbers.  He rightly points out that time and numbers are important components of music and, by extension, poetry.
