Mark Strand: “[b]ut the dark approaches/ to any page are too numerous”

20 Jan

from “The Story of Our Lives”

If only there were a perfect moment in the book;

if only we could live in that moment,

we could begin the book again

as if we had not written it,

as if we were not in it.

But the dark approaches

to any page are too numerous

and the escapes are too narrow.
