Once Again in the Pale Unknown – Author William Wright, Jr.

 

The pale unknown curves

To appease

His starved

And reckless whims

 

In crumpled sheets

Molded and mangled

Lost, in the throes

Of lofty words

 

He lays claim

To every spire

Each ivory mountain

Of imperfection

 

Swallowed whole

In the vise

The maddening chorus

 

The will he bears

In the hold

Of lifelong distress

William Wright About the Author

 My name is William Lorenzo Wright, Jr. I am the youngest of three children, as well as the only son to two loving and hard-working parents. I am a college student from San Diego California and I hold a deep passion for reading and writing poetry. I was sixteen years old when I first fell in love with poetry and I have been faithful to the craft ever since.
