C. D. Wright's Simple Music

… I made
simple music
out of sticks and string. On side B of me,
experimental guitar, night repairs and suppers
such as this. 

- from Our Dust, C. D. Wright


I put one foot in front of the other as if it were my last. This is my task, my chosen lot. 

- C. D. Wright, “And the Last Shall Be First”
