Glyn Maxwell

Spring 2018

Home to this after time away
he was greeted like he never went,

and holds his lone indignant cry
where lone indignant cries are held.

Glyn Maxwell’s recent books of poetry include Pluto and One Thousand Nights and Counting: Selected Poems. He lived in Massachusetts and New York between 1995 and 2006, and was poetry editor at the New Republic from 2002 to 2007. He now lives in London and teaches at The Poetry School.
