Made Proud

a lake will never belong to me.
The pigeons swelling; hello

            this was washed along with the jeans, but here. Have a mint
          lean gatherers of beans, milkers

When you said "pulling my leg" what body
of water was I being led to

to believe in?
switch it off, as these journalists tend to ruin

               finding the webs of others useful, shapely
pigeons alighting or not
                       informed by shrapnel wheeling on gurneys

                            your people, forever. But not your museums
                            Leaving is not coming to terms.

This is beautiful, and all the more so because its meaning radiates outward, just beyond one's grasp.

Thank you, Susan. August is here, and classes will be opening in a couple of weeks. Writing as much as I can before the whiteboard steals me away.

We hope you're doing great :)
