Lines and a quote from Michael Robbins

The boys like the girls who like heavy metal.
On Sabbath, on Slayer, on Maiden and Venom,
on Motorhead, Leppard, and Zeppelin, and Mayhem…

and “Iron Maiden’s Number of the Beast will always defeat your irony.”

Sections from Tom Pickard’s Lark & Merlin are excellent, particularly:

cumulus in a tarn
its fast shadow
flees far hills

a wave of sleek grass
skiffs mist

my hand thought of her
a photograph
waiting to happen

A quote from John Tranter

“I have come to believe that the kind of meaning a poem has is like the kind of meaning a dream has: intense, loaded with symbols, quirky, personal, and obscure.”

and a quote from Rimbaud:

Oisive jeunesse
A tout asservie,
Par délicatesse
J’ai perdu ma vie.
Ah! Que le temps vienne
Où les coeurs s’éprennent.

A line from Jane Hirshfield : “Think assailable thoughts, or be lonely.”

I can see my future in Attilio Bertolucci’s Poppies

Linda Gregerson reflects on the past presidential election in The Selvage.
