    The game of baseball is not a metaphor
    and I know it's not really life.

    Autumn

    All day I have watched the purple vine leaves
    Fall into the water.
    And now in the moonlight they still fall,
    But each leaf is fringed with silver.

    I believe there is a good chance that the Bijou would be shuttered and that the only business in the 400 block of Gay Street would be a wig store if not for the Metro Pulse. Not the paper per se,...

    October 14—The Dow Closes Up 10015

    I bleed a little, peyote tea waits in the refrigerator,
    a Ferris Wheel rolls and rolls over the highway
    after the miscarriage, we search
    for rings with missing stones, unmatched earrings

    JR is right. The system is badly broken and it is very important that we pass No. 2. BTW: Shame on WUOT! In this morning's story on No. 2. Chrissy Keuper referred to No.2 as a "minor change." It...

    The Journey

    Anghiari is medieval, a sleeve sloping down
    A steep hill, suddenly sweeping out
    To the edge of a cliff, and dwindling.
    But far up the mountain, behind the town,
    We too were swept out, out...

    First Light Edging Cirrus

    1025 molecules
    are enough
    to call woodthrush or apple.

    A hummingbird, fewer.
    A wristwatch: 1024

    An alphabet’s molecules,
    tasting of honey, iron, and salt,
    cannot be counted—

    Equinox

    Now is the time of year when bees are wild
    and eccentric. They fly fast and in cramped
    loop-de-loops, dive-bomb clusters of conversants
    in the bright, late-September out-of-doors.
    I have found...

    Preludes

    The winter evening settles down
    With smell of steaks in passageways.
    Six o’clock.
    The burnt-out ends of smoky days.
    And now a gusty shower wraps
    The grimy scraps
    Of withered leaves about...

    Poetry in Time of War

    I want to forget their names, the generals,
    advisors, puppet rulers,
    the puffed-up and the brought-low,

    I want not to know them,
    not hear their plans, their excuses,
    the President and the...

    from somewhere west and I keep coming to lean on the sill, glorying in

    Epilogue

    Try to Praise the Mutilated World

    Try to praise the mutilated world.
    Remember June's long days,
    and wild strawberries, drops of rosé wine.
    The nettles that methodically overgrow
    the abandoned homesteads of exiles.

    Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard

    The curfew tolls the knell of parting day,
    The lowing herd wind slowly o'er the lea,
    The plowman homeward plods his weary way,
    And leaves the world to darkness and to me.

    Sitting with Others

    The front seats filled last. Laggards, buffoons,
    and kiss-ups falling in beside local politicos,
    the about to be honored, and the hard of hearing.

    What I Learned From the Incredible Hulk

    When it comes to clothes, make
    an allowance for the unexpected.
    Be sure the spare in the trunk
    of your station wagon with wood paneling

    isn’t in need of repair. A simple jean jacket
    says Hey,...

    Eightfold Chant
