A Poem To Start Your Weekend
Eliza Griswold's debut poetry collection, Wideawake Field, will be released in paperback later this month, and the word is that she'll be contributing a blog post or two later this month. (From Mogadishu, no less, a location that I suspect has more to do with her other job as an investigative journalist.)
We're too young for this discourse of ex's—
ex-habits and yearnings for why
nothing fits as it did in our dreams,
neither horrific nor wonderful.
