KEITH ABBOTT (1944-2019) ~

1944 (Tacoma, WA) ~ 2019



Someone asked me the other day — "what's the sort of poem
do you like?"
All types!
But here's one I read the night before, before falling off to sleep, and I marked it:

The untitled poem is by Douglas Crase from his forthcoming book
The Revisionist and The Astropastorals
(Nightboat Books, 2019)


Under the rim of maybe

Back on the edge of regret

Around the corner from should have

Down the street from forget

Out on a limb with willing

Too far gone to remark

Close to the tip of almost

Up slip creek in the dark
