"'Whenever you receive a letter from a creditor / immediately write fifty lines / upon an otherworldly subject, / and you will be saved!' (If not from the stepfool.)" Franz Wright reads "Baudelaire" from his book Wheeling Motel (Knopf, 2009) at the 2008 Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival. Wright passed away last month at the age of sixty-two.
