    Michael McGriff

    Winter 2024

    When the dead unbury themselves,
    will they finally throw away
    all the chipped saucers
    and scrape the contact paper
    from the cupboards,
    will they awaken
    into the ceremonies
    their bad knees and small regrets
    have become? Like me,
    will their final acts of sincerity
    include keeping their heads down
    at the grocery store, avoiding
    conversations with others?

    Michael McGriff is the author of four books of poetry, Eternal Sentences, Early Hour, Home Burial, and Dismantling the Hills. His other books include a translation of Tomas Tranströmer’s The Sorrow Gondola, an edition of David Wevill’s essential writing, To Build My Shadow a Fire, and the story collection Our Secret Life in the Movies. He codirects the MFA program at the University of Idaho.
