Poetry Friday: To Myself

September 18th, 2009

As I was looking for a poem to include in today’s Poetry Friday roundup, I came across this collection on the Poetry Foundation’s website: Ten Poems to Read When You Get Stuffed into Your Locker. I picked this one by Franz Wright, but it’s worth reading the others as well. You just never know when you might find yourself in a locker!

To Myself
by Franz Wright
You are riding the bus again
burrowing into the blackness of Interstate 80,
the sole passenger

with an overhead light on.
And I am with you.
I’m the interminable fields you can’t see,

the little lights off in the distance
(in one of those rooms we are
living) and I am the rain

Read the rest of the poem here…
