Poetry Oracle





Grace catches you out like a hook,
you're pulled out of yourself, a moment,
and that's the ache: peculiar blow,
reminded you aren't who you think you are.

Mark Doty, from "The Pink Poppy" in School of the Arts

  3. Love Mark Doty. I have "Fire to Fire" and was fortunate enough to hear him read a few years ago in New York. His partner, Paul Lisicky, is an excellent novelist as well.

    I am not kidding you.
