A Note on the Local

The local is not a place but a place in a given man – what part of it

he has been compelled or else brought by love to give witness to in

his own mind. And that is THE form, that is, the whole thing, as

whole as it can get.

I think we will be fools to be embarrassed by it. We know the

other neatness possible, the way of the neat pattern, and the dodging

which it must call for. Grace has no part in that. At some point

reached by us, sooner or later, there is no longer much else but

ourselves, in the place given to us. To make that present, and actual

for other men, is not an embarrassment, but love.

First person, no. 1, 1961.
Robert Creeley
