The future is always beginning now.

We hung some lights and I spent some time reading, but none of it really matters because my poet died.

Admittedly, I don’t know as much as I should about poetry, but I do know that I’ve never read a Mark Strand poem that I didn’t like, and Mr. Strand died today at his daughter’s house.

Back in 2009, I wrote one of Strand’s poems as a handwriting challenge. I’m slapping it back up today. Enjoy.

Mark Strand is a Genius.

 I recommend this book. As soon as I find my copy, I’m going to read it from cover to cover. (Have I mentioned that we still haven’t unpacked?) ‘ ‘ ‘text/javascript’>

  1. Since you are the second person in my feed, whose opinions I greatly respect, I will look for this man’s work. In exchange for which, if you are not already familiar with her wonderfulness, allow me to recommend Sharon Olds. Her stuff is pretty stunning.

  2. Thanks for this post. I do love your handwritten thing and I agree Mark Strand is an amazing poet and I thank you for tell me that we lost him.
