Linda Gregg

There is a hunger for order,
but a thirst against. What if
every time a fíower forms in the rnind,
something gives it away to time?
Leaf by peta!, by leaf. As if the soul
were a blotter of this world—


— Linda Gregg, opening lines to “Hard Season,” The American Poetry Review (vol. 28, no. 5, September / October 1999)
