    Edward Hirsch is the most inspiring poet that I learned from his books. I find myself through his words, like if we came from the same world now or even in another life I don't know, but that what I feel.

Branch Library

I wish I could find that skinny, long-beaked boy
who perched in the branches of the old branch library.

He spent the Sabbath flying between the wobbly stacks
and the flimsy wooden tables on the second floor,

pecking at nuts, nesting in broken spines, scratching
notes under his own corner patch of sky.
