Old Poem Saturday – Late Fragment – Carver

 

LateFragmentRaymond Carver arranged “Late Fragment” as the last poem in his last published work. He would pass away shortly thereafter of liver cancer, his amazing writing career cut dramatically short. This simple poem, which also graces Mr. Carver’s gravestone, has become one of his most beloved. For a beautiful critique of why this is so, head over here. Collage and composition by me. Have a lovely weekend!
