"Leaving Is Not The Hard Part" By Tony Brewer

moving boxes

"Don’t think that the person who is trying to comfort you now lives untroubled among the simple and quiet words that sometimes give you much pleasure. His life has much trouble and sadness, and remains far behind yours. If it were otherwise, he would never have been able to find those words."

-Ranier Maria Rilke

Tony Brewer is a poet, sound effects artist, and roller derby announcer. He has two books of poems, The Great American Scapegoat and Little Glove in a Big Hand, and he is the executive director of the Spoken Word Stage at the 4th Street Festival of the Arts in Bloomington, Indiana.
