That’s all I wanted to say.
Think of me now and then, as I think of you
When the moon’s like a golden tick on the summer sky
Gorged with light:
you’re part of my parts of speech.
Think of me now and then. I’ll think of you.
—Charles Wright, from “To Giacomo Leopardi in the Sky” in The World of the Ten Thousand Things: Poems 1980-1990 (Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, 1990)
