Post-Factual Love Poem

Paul Guest

About This Poem


"I wanted to write a love poem about this nightmarish era. I think I was unsure if it was still possible. Or if it mattered. I was interested in the direct intimacy of the voice, in its inherent drama. And a local doughnut shop really did close after forty-seven years."
—Paul Guest
