Tracy K. Smith is the current United States Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry which is commonly referred to as the United States Poet Laureate.

I'm embarrassed not to have included a poem or two by her this year. Time to make a correction.

Today's poem is from Ms. Smith's fourth book of verse, "Wade in the Water" (Graywolf). Graywolf is a local publishing house (Minneapolis).

Hilton Als who writes for the New Yorker reminded of my forgetfulness in his October1, 2018 essay about some of her poetry. It is titled "The Muses" (print) or in the electronic edition, "Tracy K. Smith's Poetry of Desire."
