“I worry about journalism. I don’t worry about Poetry.” + another lullaby for insomniacs

Poetry is not useful, and it is in every culture.  Not only is it not endangered, it will outlast any number of species of living things on the face of the earth. It will only perish with our own.  I worry about journalism.  I don’t worry about Poetry.

Why bother with poetry? – A.E. Stallings – Times Literary Supplement – November 7, 2016

Another Lullaby for Insomniacs
A.E. Stallings 
Sleep, she will not linger:
She turns her moon-cold shoulder.
With no ring on her finger,
You cannot hope to hold her.
