Typing Carver

After two days of staring at a blank sheet of paper, I typed out Raymond Carver’s Wenas Ridge from his collected poems, All of Us. As Lawrence said in the movie Lawrence of Arabia, “the trick is not minding that it hurts.”

Lies began to coil in my heart and call it home.
Got used to darkness and its crooked ways.

From Wenas Ridge, Raymond Carver
