Bonnefoy, Grae, and Moore: New Poetry at AGNI!

We’ve got great new poetry up on the main AGNI website!

“This low door is quite familiar, by the way. It reminds them of their childhood home, and of the big enclosure at the end of the garden where in the evening, when everything turned ominous with shadows and cries, they liked to take refuge before they were called in for dinner.”
“The Low Door,” Yves Bonnefoy, translated from the French by Hoyt Rogers

“Now I grasp that the house isn’t of this world—that it was laid out in another era, elsewhere. And I can almost see beings from that elsewhere grouped around a table.”
“At the Dawn of Time,” Yves Bonnefoy, translated from the French by Hoyt Rogers

“And be reborn? Not as a naiad. No. I want feathers
& dark. Let me be the hunter.”
“Lethe,” Tanya Grae

“There’s no sleeping through the fireworks,
but after, in the absence, the whole night rings
from possibility.”
“Mating Season,” Tanya Grae

“‘You can’t have everything,’ they say. But the problem is
you do.”
“The Problem,” Jim Moore

“The old woman in the black dress
is there at the harbor, waiting for someone in need.
She leads me to a dark room, brings cold water in a bucket.”
“Say Forty-Eight Years Have Passed,” Jim Moore

Enjoy!

One thought on “Bonnefoy, Grae, and Moore: New Poetry at AGNI!

  1. 8/11/16

    The arrival of Yves Bonnefoy’s poetry marks the departure of the poet, a departure on a voyage, an arrival of tomorrow’s grace. “The Low Door” has imagery suggested by Dante’s Inferno, accessing Heaven through the cold last ring of hell. A low door and away we go, who suggests a knowledge of childhood. The cries of birds in the shadows of twilight go noticed.
