Kenneth Rexroth

“Whether or not, it is no question now,
Of time or place, or even how,
It is not time for questions now,
Nor yet the place.”
The soft lights of your face
Arrange themselves in memories
Of smiles and frowns.

— Kenneth Rexroth, from “The Thin Edge of Your Pride VII,” The collected shorter poems (New Directions Publishing Corporation, 1967)
