I decide to come to you beneath
like an aqueduct pipe
a closed faucet, silent but on fire
ready to quench the wide open thirst
that's taken hold.
--Antonio Porta, Distance In Love
Cell is mind stall, is
bone of brain illumined
--Clark Coolidge, In Cell
A mouth said a bad word. A foot
kicked me. One brick in the pavement
stared into my left eye, and a noise
came closer and closer--a siren.
--William Stafford, Local Events
