Favorite Line/ Phrase: “Not an absence”
Response: This is such a short poem, you have no excuse not to click on it right now. And I think it asks how much work one image can do. If you look at this poem, one answer is: a lot. And it makes me wonder, what silence exists in what I see on a daily basis that I mistake for absence.
