Forty-Seven Minutes

 
Nick Flynn

About This Poem

 

“I was going to call this poem ‘Pretend It Matters.’ It is nearly a found poem, in that I simply transcribed an incident—whatever transformations happened, happened in the moment. The girl’s question genuinely threw me—we teetered for a moment on the edge of existential dread, that edge we avoid as we get older and closer to the actual abyss.”

—Nick Flynn

 

Nick Flynn is the author of several poetry collections, as well as the memoir The Reenactments (W. W. Norton, 2013). He teaches at the University of Houston each spring, and lives the rest of the year in Brooklyn.
