Someday the last poet in the world
will write the world’s last poem,
and someday the last reader in the world
will read it and say to herself,
“Where is Emily Dickinson when you need her?”

J. R. Solonche is author of Beautiful Day (Deerbrook Editions), Won’t Be Long (Deerbrook Editions), Heart’s Content (Five Oaks Press), Invisible (nominated for the Pulitzer Prize by Five Oaks Press), and The Black Birch (Kelsay Books).
