In the New Room

The estimable Dave Lull alerts me to a forthcoming new collection from the great Kay Ryan [see Nigeness, passim]. Erratic Facts will be published in October, and it seems to be full of wonderful stuff. Here's a sample - a lucid, exquisitely crafted little gem that says it all in the fewest possible words (and is perhaps especially apposite for one finding himself in the New Room of retirement)...

New Rooms

The mind must
set itself up
wherever it goes
and it would be
most convenient
to impose its
old rooms—just
tack them up
like an interior
tent. Oh but
the new holes 
aren’t where 
the windows
went.

    Oh but the new holes aren’t where the windows went.

    Basically two couplets of more or less alexandrines.

    The sentiment that we move through time and find ourselves renewed as we do so.
