"Here on the wet southern coast of Ireland,
a hot white sun fills the room built to capture it,
and looking out past the vines at the shrubbed arboled
ferned grassed cliffs and at the algaed rocks,
I feel a muted terror sitting
at the center of this white totality."

— Christopher Robinson, from “West Cork”

"You find it in yourself: the ways that led inexorably from
Home to here are simply stories now, leading nowhere anymore;"

— John Koethe, from “A Private Singularity”

but now I know I was the fool 
for starting every single 
sentence in my head with “we”
