And With a Fit

This poem first ran in the Midsummer 2007 edition of Grub Street Grackle. It appears here online for the first time.

And with a fit of overwhelming story,
a recollection of your rage and glory:
is it possible—do you think?—
to decline,
when you sink
to the bottom of your past,
the invitation,
which comes at last,
of Forgetting?

Original bio from the Midsummer 2007

Sean Mahoney requires no elucidation, which is to say that he requires every possible elucidation. For what more demands explanation than that which admits of none, being somehow explained ahead of time?
