THE REAL WEST MARGINAL WAY

RICHARD HUGO

I never could determine if I wrote poems to make sure things remained where they belonged, or to free things to wander in where they were not expected but would be welcome all the same.
— Richard Hugo

This line from Richard Hugo's collection of autobiographical essays The Real West Marginal Way caught me off guard. I didn't see it coming. It was just one of those lines. I guess I can say after reading it that I write stories to make sure things remain where they belong.
