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

Poetry Belief I believe that in that Eden we have all heard of they who were there gained information but not knowledge. I believe that the world and the word are as original as sin and that we were born to die. And that our sins will be buried with us. I believe that someone might have come from some inconspicuous place and done miraculous things and been buried in disgrace. I believe that at the end of things there will come more things than anyone can imagine, or even conceive of. I believe that even after the end, and the next one, and the next, there will be yet another, and another again. I do not believe but I believe in these beliefs. ß William Virgil Davis Author biography William Virgil Davis’ most recent book is Landscape and Journey (2009), winner of the New Criterion Poetry Prize and the Helen C.
