"Songs ought to be sung,
and when possible,

stories ought to be told

as they happened,
        not from the shortest distance, not
unattached, not asleep.

        but I didn’t know what to keep,

        you, small chair; you, empty belly;

you, knock on the dark door."

- Charlotte Boulay, from “Aubade with Pericardium and Visitor,” Michigan Quarterly Review (Summer 2007)
