A Yellow Leaf

Ariana Reines

About This Poem


“‘The worlds revolve like ancient women / Gathering fuel in ancient lots,’ wrote T. S. Eliot. At times I have the peculiar sense these revolving women, like worlds, are seething in my blood: it’s exhilarating, and unbearable. But then you write a poem and you’re fine.”
