Thought for the Day

No one living a snowed-in life
can sleep without a blindfold. [. . .]
~ Terrance Hayes

Quoted from Terrance Hayes's poem "Snow for Wallace Stevens" in Lighthead (Penguin Books, Penguin Poets Series, 2010 )

Hayes's most recent collection is How to Be Drawn (Penguin Books, 2015), which was a finalist in 2015 for a National Book Award and National Book Critics Circle Award. Lighthead won the 2010 National Book Award for Poetry.
