Natalie Diaz
Marfa, Poet
Fall 2012

“I was lucky enough to come to Marfa, Texas, to chase down the poems and stories that have been chasing me through my busy life for the last few years. They were here, waiting for me, outside that giant picture window, in the morning light shifting from black to blue to purple to brown to rust, within the clicking of the bleached yucca bells. The words here are different. They come as regularly as the trains, being pulled from your chest like hallelujah before midnight or hurtling through your head like a blur of metal and graffiti.”
