Thought for the Day

. . . sometimes only nothing can open the door to something else.
~ Barbara Hamby

Quoted from Barbara Hamby, "Athena Ode", in Bird Odyssey (University of Pittsburgh Press/Pitt Poetry Series, March 2018). The text of the poem was published in The New Yorker (January 25, 2016).

If you've never read Hamby, look her up (plenty of poems are online and on her Website). She's a terrific poet.
