Where Death Goes

Where Death Goes
“A life begun and its meanings arising/like incipient words in a decipherable sentence/left unfinished at death/an utterance begun in the liquid season/ but left incompletely congealed/a song begun in the back of the throat in the/pitchblack unknown part of the heart/and even in the body’s unknowable wellsprings” Written 2001-2002 (unpublished).

Through Rose-Colored Glasses

Through Rose-Colored Glasses
“Like my little row house backyard garden/even though I’m now 62/I’m just starting out/each year a new profusion of green/vines grasses weeds of /particular beauty Black-eyed Susans from/before clumps of reeds shoots of brown whatevers/this year particularly beautiful a real/secret grotto garden as I’d so/desired where a Rousseau tiger might prowl” Written in 2002-2003 (unpublished).
