Charles Wright

Is it age, is it lack of adoration, is it Regret there’s no ladder to the clouds? Whatever, we inhabit the quotidian, as we must, While somewhere behind our backs,                                                      waterfalls tumble and keep on going Into the deep desire of distance. — Charles Wright, “Waterfalls,” Caribou (Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, 2014) Advertisements
