The Lord’s Pier

Continuing our celebration of National Poetry Month with The Lord’s Pier by Daniel Wolff. “The Hudson is dotted with ruins: monuments to what men and women have tried to build. Forts, castles, in this case a pier. Over time, the river wins and wears down what the builder thought was permanent. History becomes the history-of-history and then disappears altogether. This is about Piermont Pier, used mostly now for dog walking, fishing, and bird watching.”
