The world today, flooding intermittently.
Dry now, the sky is being willfully obtuse

about just what it is— the white
of an eye, a means of containment.

Nothing about it says finite.
The city seen from a moderate distance—

old glass, new glass, die-cut gulls.
It’s a low ceiling that we operate under.

In copper-hued plate glass,
the transit of clouds.


  1. I love the scientific precision here, the reference to the white of the eye and then the beauty of the mood in this one. I love the copper light of evenings in spring, then the bluer twilight of summer. (It might well STICK this year, something beyond rain!)
