"Their Sons Grow Suicidally Beautiful"

As I said before, if you were investing in poets, I'd heartily recommend James Wright.

The second of our three poets this month to buy Wright stock, as it were, is August Kleinzahler, who breaks the fourth wall slightly in his intro by mentioning that he's pleased to be reading Wright's 'Autumn Begins in Martins Ferry, Ohio' in the fall. (Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!)

But hey--in New York City, at least, it's cold enough to be autumn. And I'm certain Kalamazoo, MI, where I'm headed for the weekend, is going to be at least as cold. So we'll call it square, and everyone can enjoy the poem in the perfect temperature, if not the perfect month.
