On discovery—discovery is one of the most important parts of poetry to me and one of the things that keeps me continually engaged is what can the poem teach us, and what can we discover throughout it and how can we use the poem as a point of reflection?
The planets rise like white spots in the purple
evening sticking out like a child’s tongue
for a doctor to hold the moonlight to.
In eternity, everything is healthy, but here
even a good family must struggle to get along.
