poetry is of so subtle a spirit, that in the pouring out of one language into another it will evaporate. -john denham

Standard

water

Everything on the earth bristled,

the bramble pricked

and the green thread nibbled away,

the petal fell,

falling until the only flower was the falling itself.

Water is another matter,

has no direction but its own bright grace,

runs through all imaginable colors,

takes limpid lessons from stone,

and in those functionings plays out

the unrealized ambitions of the foam.

bread and poetry.

Standard

yes, that is

a cookie groundhog

with a chocolate chip face

popping out of a bagel hole

covered in cream cheese snow

sprinkled with smashed up wafer cookie dirt .

in honor of world poetry day (yesterday)

and groundhog day (in february)

and bread and peace. (everyday)


“peace goes into the making of a poem as flour goes into the making of bread.”

-pablo neruda
