Sarah Goldstein Responds to Page 26 of The Source

Sarah Goldstein is the Head of Digital Assets & Preservation Services at Mt. Holyoke College.

He’s rolling over from the east, inky reservoir unseen for miles, arrow crossed at Ware, slowing to the reek of the mill. Next car over, a woman is driving and sucking her thumb, holding the wheel with the other hand, framed by blameless storefront. Smoke lulls from the hood: all the cars smoke a little: the round trip wrecks an engine, but it’s better than animal options of goats pulling chariots, or some equine of dubious stamina: that one day of charred donkeys and frantic ferrymen piling up at the checkpoint. He’ll beat the thumb-sucker to Petersham, teeth grinding his own clay pipe.
