Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

Poetry in the Time of a Dictator


the thing is observed

the thing being
a moment
a view
a tree
a pier
an island
ocean
wave

the one thing
the many things
the one thing, again

now, an artist might be grinning
or grimacing or drunk
a poet might be lost or losing
a friend might be alone
a pain might subside

a moment
a view
a tree
a pier
an island
ocean
wave

the picture is a vacation
