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

  • The Last Poet in the Anthology
  • David McLoghlin (bio)

Usually the youngest among the oneswho still have hyphens for death days—maybe, finally a woman, or a name heavywith vowels—I’m represented by a single poem.So don’t think me ungrateful. Even though I wrote itmyself, there’s a curt strangeness, rereading my bio,that leaves out my life: “work published in Shindig,Black Rhino, and Coterie. Has lived in Romeand Antwerp. Now teaching Special Needs in Trim.”I know the crabby elder statesman anthologisthas given me the nod to stand for this generation.I know speech after long silence; it is rightand just, to be here. And after all the definitered brick edifice becoming the canonin the previous pages, there’s a tentativenessabout my single poem: but something growing,nonetheless. Even though it might justbe breath on the window. [End Page 389]
