In the last semester of graduate school, Rigoberto Gonzalez my workshop great advice about what to do when it seems we’ve fallen out of love with poetry: “Go back to what you were reading when you were in love with poetry. Find those poems & see what was in them that made you fall in love in the first place.”
Not a cruel song, no, no, not cruel at all. This song
is sweet. It is sweet. The heart dies of this sweetness.
