The Final Word (a poem by Chris Kirkpatrick)

Nothing is more
Impossible

Than a mind that
Says

With every
Fiber of itself,

“I’m done.”
One might rather

Raise
The continental

Shelf
Or hurl himself

Headlong
Into the sun.


Chris Kirkpatrick is the author of two books of poetry, Learning to See from the Blind and Mixed Metaphors and is currently working on his third.
