Walking to the Office With Wallace Stevens

Walking two miles today, I imagined

walking to Hartford Accident and Indemnity Company

with Wallace Stevens, not talking surety claims.

He says, “After one has abandoned belief in god,

poetry takes its place as life’s redemption.”

The quote in my poem appears in a slightly different form
in Steven’s book Opus Posthumous: Poems, Plays, Prose.
