It’s the linkage I’m talking about,

and the harmonies and structures

and all the various things that lock our wrists to the past.

Something infinite behind everything appears,

and then disappears.

It’s all a matter of how

you narrow the surfaces.

It’s all a matter of how you fit in the sky.

-Charles Wright, excerpt from The Other Side of the River
