In the final hours of our tenancy at 535 Powell Street, our staff, volunteers, and close friends came together to say goodbye to our longtime home. We gathered around candles and cups of hot coffee to listen to actor, scholar and art historian Lissa Renaud read Director Anne Brodzky's favorite poem, "The Well Dressed Young Man with a Beard," by Wallace Stevens:
After the final no there comes a yes
And on that yes the future world depends.
No was the night. Yes is this present sun.
If the rejected things, the things denied,
Slid over the western cataract, yet one,
One only, one thing that was firm, even
No greater than a cricket's horn, no more
Than a thought to be rehearsed all day, a speech
Of the self that must sustain itself on speech,
One thing remaining, infallible, would be
Enough. Ah! douce campagna of that thing!
Ah! douce campagna, honey in the heart,
Green in the body, out of a petty phrase,
Out of a thing believed, a thing affirmed:
The form on the pillow humming while one sleeps,
The aureole above the humming house . . .
It can never be satisfied, the mind, never.
