New Selected Poems by Edwin Morgan
“When you go,

lightly roused you awake.
I asked if you heard the rain in your dream
and half dreaming still you only said, I love you.”

“home is the structure/ you build when nowhere else will have you”
Ann Tweedy, The Body's Alphabet

“. . . if i am somehow, miraculously, bodied then/
my skin is a collage of meditations on love and shattered selves.”
Billy-Ray Belcourt, This Wound Is a World

“Love does not begin and end the way we seem to think it does. Love is a battle, love is a war; love is a growing up.”
James A. Baldwin

“For beauty is nothing but the beginning of terror
which we are barely able to endure, and it amazes us so,
because it serenely disdains to destroy us.
Every angel is terrible.”
Rainer Maria Rilke, Duino Elegies

“Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.”
James Baldwin
