Poetry can put a microphone to a situation. One of the things poetry does at its best is to be true to some small detail of a place and a time and a political situation, not offering a solution but offering a way into—I hesitate to use the word verity because it sounds so grandiose—but offering a way into the core of the tragedy, the heart of the matter.

--Paul Muldoon


Justice: When you get what you deserve.

Mercy: When you don’t get what you deserve.

Grace: When you get what you don’t deserve.
