"The act of poetry is a rebel act."

Poetry Magazine Honors Dennis O’Driscoll

The February issue of Poetry magazine, commemorates Dennis O’Driscoll, who passed away in December.  The inside cover features the first stanza of his poem “Tomorrow.”

Tomorrow

Tomorrow I will start to be happy.
The morning will light up like a celebratory cigar.
Sunbeams sprawling on the lawn will set
dew sparkling like a cut-glass tumbler of champagne.
Today will end the worst phase of my life.
I will put my shapeless days behind me,
fencing off the past, as a golden rind
of sand parts slipshod sea from solid land.
It is tomorrow I want to look back on, not today.
Tomorrow I start to be happy; today is almost yesterday.
