I don't have the quick agility with poetry as she does. But I recently bought a book called Something Permanent that is very nice--it's a collection of Walker Evans photography accompanied by poems by Cynthia Rylant. Here's an example of one I like very much.
He told her that if she'd come with him
they could stay at his sister's in Vicksburg
then catch the Greyhound north for Pennsylvania,
and maybe there he'd
find work and they'd make it some way.
She asked how was he going to buy
two bus tickets to Pittsburgh
when he didn't have even a dime, and he said
he'd offer to drive the bus halfway,
and this made some kind of desperate sense to her
so she went.
Here are some other photos of Evans. . . do any of them inspire you to write?
