Frustration

After a discussion this evening with a friend who is frustrated, I found myself reaching for Russell Edson’s collection What A Man Can See, in search of the simple, unpunctuated passage from its title entry:

There was a tower where a man said I can live.  After grief it can happen that he comes.  Then he saw summer its field and its tree.  He heard the wind and he saw a cloud.
