Mathieu’s Reading

Mathieu Caceres, “The Biography in the Colophon”

Mathieu’s Artist Statement

I wrote this poem as a sort of companion piece to Wallace Stevens’ poem, “Dezembrum,” which also features a similar structure: five quatrains. I usually do not structure my poems this way but in reading Stevens, I wanted to try something different, or rather, an emulation of, in the words of Theodore Roethke, “our father.”
