personal favorites / poetry collections… Plainwater by Anne Carson

Anne Carson

Plainwater

 
 
 
 
 
 

from “Short Talks”

On Orchids

We live by tunneling for we are people buried alive. To me, the tunnels you make will seem strangely aimless, uprooted orchids. But the fragrance is undying. A Little Boy has run away from Amherst a few Days ago, writes Emily Dickinson in a letter of 1883, and when asked where he was going, he replied, Vermont or Asia.
