Poets and Poems: Mark Doty and “Deep Lane”

Of the 36 poems in Deep Lane by Mark Doty, nine of them are entitled “Deep Lane.” So if you asked me which poem is the title poem for the collection, I would have to say, “Yes.”

Perhaps all nine are. Perhaps all nine should be.

As I read these poems, certain words came coming to kind. Quiet. Beauty. Defined. Precise. Distance.

“Distance” is something of the odd-man-out here.
