"RED SHIFT," Ted Berrigan

"I'm only pronouns, & I am all of them, & I didn't ask for this You did / I came into your life to change it & it did so & now nothing will ever change"

Listen to a recording of Berrigan's "Red Shift" at Penn Sound and read the entire poem on Buffalo's site. Its good, so very good.


  1. "I would never & never will leave alone until we both vanish into the thin air we signed up for & so demanded / To breathe & who will never leave me"

  2. "I will never go away, & you will never escape from me who am always & only a ghost, despite this frame"
