    Fall 2023

    Ah, my radical friend. Later,
    it was still the sixties,
    the soi-disant and distant sixties.
    The long-haired sixties,

    where every pair of shoes was a protest.

    to visit, sticking the long hours north
    to Springfield. I spent the weekend alone,

    watching strangers shoot up.

    William Logan’s most recent book of poetry is Rift of Light (2017), and his most recent book of criticism is Broken Ground: Poetry and the Demon of History (2021).
