William Empson: Let it GoPosted: March 30, 2014 Filed under: people, poetry, states of mind Leave a comment
Let It Go
It is this deep blankness is the real thing strange.
The more things happen to you the more you can’t
Tell or remember even what they were.
The contradictions cover such a range.
The talk would talk and go so far aslant.
You don’t want madhouse and the whole thing there.
– William Empson
