A Better Life

Randall Mann

About This Poem


"I wrote this poem on the cusp of my forty-fifth birthday; in what is likely the middle of my life, I often feel mystified, invisible, but also incredibly lucky—because I'm still here. This poem borrows the form of 'Policronías,' one of my favorites by Cortázar."
—Randall Mann
