To a Son

Sarah V. Schweig

Down pours spring.

I swim the Mississippi

in a dream. Time

is a library on fire. You will want

to know everything. But only

some things remain.

Sarah V. Schweig is the author of Take Nothing with You. She works as an editor and studies philosophy at The New School for Social Research.
