Biden Unbound

Seamus Heaney, 2009. (Photo: Sean O’Connor) “At their inauguration, public leaders/
must swear to uphold unwritten law and weep/to atone for their presumption to hold office -/and to affirm their faith that all life sprang/from salt in tears which the sky-god wept/after he dreamt his solitude was endless.”
