Robert Pinsky Quotes

    At Pleasure Bay

    In the willows along the river at Pleasure Bay
    A catbird singing, never the same phrase twice.
    Here under the pines a little off the road
    In 1927 the Chief of Police
    And Mrs. W. killed themselves together,
    Sitting in a roadster. Ancient unshaken pilings
    And underwater chunks of still-mortared brick
    In shapes like bits of puzzle strew the bottom
    Where the landing was for Price's Hotel and Theater.
