Stephen Dunn

More and more you learn to live
with the unacceptable.
You sense the ever-hidden God
retreating even farther,
terrified or embarrassed.

— Stephen Dunn, from “Before the Sky Darkens,” as quoted in “Down from the Tower: Poetry as Confabulation,” by Bill Christophersen, Poetry (January 2002)
