In Plurals

Tracy K. Smith is an outstanding American poet. Her most recent book, Life on Mars, won the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for poetry, so she’s no secret. Recently, I’ve been reading an earlier work, Duende (2007), and came across these lines from her poem “September”:

Our eyes see in plurals:
What we understand, and what will fail.
They’re both the only world.
