“The future holds . . . the sun rising despite the moon or the fog, those big blue eyes wide when the world says hello. The future is the poem and the poem, the future. There isn’t one without the other in my view. I am a poet; I see everything as the poem.”(Thibodeaux, E-mail to Brittany Foley 11 Feb. 2011 sec. 6)
