Suzanne Stein's Passenger Ship


Passenger Ship
Out of Print


Learning to Forget

how well we pull together, don’t we? said Nora

who objected to silence just then

you may take an oar if you like

nothing seemed impossible in the beginning

black shadow of the tower falling far across the sunny water

rest a little, and let me row

the wound insists on healing

letters such a comfort

if not an opera then a requiem
