August 3, 2011


no matter how loud
the television is on
alone is still alone

no matter how many
times the refrigerator
is opened and scanned . . . again and again

for something, but what?
nothing in there can satisfy
this need to fill this emptiness

no matter how many times
something beautiful is created
something beautiful, too, is taken away.

    And the iguanas dance in the desert/a thousand miles away from this place/and this face: stoned immaculate.

    "Let us remember . . . that in the end we go to poetry for one reason, so that we might more fully inhabit our lives and the world in which we live them, and that if we more fully inhabit these things, we might be less apt to destroy both." Christian Wiman, Editor of "POETRY" "Hang on to your hopes my friend; That's an easy thing to say, but if your hopes should pass away, simply pretend that you can build them again." ~ Paul Simon
