What happened at Virginia Tech. goes beyond what the mind can fathom, the heart can bear, the soul can possess, and I turn to the only poet who consoles in a time like this:
For poetry makes nothing happen: it survivesIn the valley of its making where executivesWould never want to tamper, flows on southFrom ranches of isolation and the busy griefs,Raw towns that we believe and die in; it survives,A way of happening, a mouth.
Rest in Peace, my brothers and sisters.
God bless the families and friends affected. May he grant them peace.
Geoffrey, I did a link to your blog. Take care brother.
Auden. Yes. Awful thing. Yes. Speechless. Yes. Thanks for this, Geoffrey. I'm always here.
Thank you, Geoffrey.
Dear Stephen, Michael, writer, and Rethabile,
I've just come back from listening to Amiri Baraka. he was incredible. Of course, nothing went right on the technical side, but if ah so, ah so.
Thank you for your kind words and support today.
One love, one heart,
Give thanks, dance. give thanks.
rest in peace
