Keith Waldrop

(1932 / Emporia, Kansas / United States)

Poet - Poem by Keith Waldrop

The wind dying, I find a city deserted, except for crowds of
people moving and standing.
Those standing resemble stories, like stones, coal from the
death of plants, bricks in the shape of teeth.

I begin now to write down all the places I have not been—
starting with the most distant.
I build houses that I will not inhabit.
