The First Circle

From: The Missouri Review
Volume 36, Number 1, 2013
p. 176 | 10.1353/mis.2013.0017

In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

This is where Dante visits the great philosophers
and ignores the whirring machinery that kept
my unbaptized baby brother alive for a while
before he died, another spark from God’s hammer
strike fallen to darkness. My parents are not here
to tend to him, for they were made aware of Christ’s
infinite mercy and begged forgiveness. Going back
to sleep in paradise, my father, up early for work,
watches the sky get pink, alone on the bus he took
every day to the plant. But I wonder if my mother
ascended or plummeted to the realm of bleeding trees.
Her one, perhaps, irredeemable sin: grief’s utter
selfishness, the slow violence on which she wrecked.
