A Funeral in the Garden: Emily Dickinson and Courtney Barnett

A little something that I wrote for American Romanticism…

Your Very Flesh Shall Be a Great Poem

“And when they all were seated,

A Service, like a Drum –
Kept beating – beating – till I thought
My mind was going numb.”
– Emily Dickinson, “I felt a Funeral, in my Brain” (340)
