When I look back on the text, I find myself. I find a sacrificial love that is beautiful, but also painful—a love that is certain but longs to break from its hopelessness and finally connect with bliss. I composed The Cloths of Heaven during a month of study in Paris, surrounded by the history and beauty of France. No matter the surrounding, this poem draws me fiercely inward.
