2020 in My Opinion

Robert Penn Warren
Selected Poems: 1923-1966
“Garland for You”
Canto V:  “A Real Question Calling for Solution”
Verse 8

There is only one way, then, to make things hang together,
Which is to accept the logic of dream and avoid
Night air, politics, French sauces, autumn weather,
And the thought that, on your awaking, identity may be destroyed.
