“And he never had the sense of home so much as when he felt that he was going there.  

It was only when he got there that his homelessness began.”

Thomas Wolfe, You Can’t Go Home Again


I don’t exist here

not in dust

nor echoes

UR stucco heart jagged

gate fixed

Yet perdition leaks in

w/mourning doves’ censure

effacing refuge

What’s In A Name?

Re: The ongoing conflict among academic, literary & Concord elites as to how Henry David Thoreau’s name should be pronounced…

Ask a rose

what hybrid scents Spring best

if Will or Gertrude writes most true


but not thoroughly

captures the essence of you
