"Voyaging through strange seas of thought, alone ..." William Wordsworth

27 November 2018

Listen.


Beware, O wanderer, the road is walking too,
said Rilke one day to no one in particular
as good poets address the six directions.
If you can’t bow, you’re dead meat. You’ll break
like uncooked spaghetti. Listen to the gods.
They’re shouting in your ear every second.

Jim Harrison
