Download Draft of a letter by James Longenbach PDF

By James Longenbach

From Second Draft:

What people learn

From birth,


I realized late.

My soul perched

On an olive branch

Combing itself,

Waving its plumes.  I said

Being mortal,

I aspire to

Mortal things.

I want you,

Said my soul,

If you’re telling the truth.

Draft of a Letter is a booklet approximately belief—not trust within the unknowable yet trust in what turns out bewilderingly undeniable. considering the our bodies we inhabit, the phrases we communicate, those poems observe infinitude within the so much regular locations. The revelation is disorienting and, therefore, those poems consult themselves, revise themselves, fashioning a discussion among self and soul that opens outward to incorporate different voices, fans, kids, angels, and ghosts. For James Longenbach, great distance makes the messages we ship sweeter. To be divided from ourselves is rarely to be on my own. “If the dominion is within the sky,” says the physique to the soul, “Birds gets there ahead of you.” “In time,” says the awakening soul, “I cherished my moment / physique greater / Than the first.” To reside, those poems insist, is to come up each day to the unusual beauty of the folk and locations we concept we knew top. Draft of a Letter is an unsettled and radiant paradiso, imagined within the death-shadowed, birth-haunted center of a protracted life.
