SOMETIMES 


Sometimes what is
done is not done.

In that moment,
let go. Let the

mountain come to
you. Have patience.

Let it bring the
weight which breaks us.

Let it break you.

THIS PLACE, THAT 


This place,
that place,
the places

between.
How I find
my world

and how
the world
finds me.

THE FISH 


The fish
doesn't

notice
the ocean

until
it does.

WISDOM IS 


Wisdom is
slant to us,
to what

we lose, to
what loves us
sideways.

THE OPEN STONE 


A sere
lonesomeness.

The wind.
The smell

of dry grass.
The taste

of dust on
the tongue.

All you know
recedes. There's

nothing
left here but

a stone
like a loaf

of bread,
like a vow

you will keep.

CORRECTING ROBERT BLY 


It is not
dust, Robert,

if it is
wet. Believe

me, I have
seen the rain.

ALL THE STONES 


All the stones
God left us

for heaving
and hauling

and holding,
to make me

who I am.
