Quotable - my poetry

"My poetry is suburban, it's domestic, it's middle class, and it's sort of unashamedly that, but I hope there's enough imaginative play in there that it's not simply poems about barbecuing."

~ Billy Collins

"No wonder the moon in the window seems to have drifted
out of a love poem that you used to know by heart."

[the last line of his poem, Forgetfulness]

Suburban whistfulness?
