    Could I get a copy of the poem read at Brian Doyle’s tribute in September? Thanks so much!

Nearing Autobiography

Those are my bones rifted
and curled, knees to chin,
among the rocks on the beach,
my hands splayed beneath my skull
in the mud. Those are my rib
bones resting like white sticks
wracked on the bank, laid down,
delivered, rubbed clean
by river and snow.
