las cosas la están mirando/ y ella no puede mirarlas

January 31, 2009

When I wrote poetry in my teens, I would always include an epigraph from as ostensibly unrelated a source as possible,

and I still love resonances that are unexpected or unusual, or that cut against the grain,

for they remind us that things cast their shadows before them, call & reach out for one another across time and space.
