EQUIPOISE / Vivian Teter I wake too warm, fully dressed, the vegetable world again divides from darkness. Over the floor, five white envelopes named, addressed, letterless. You are leaving today, so I've returned to these rooms, rearranged my belongings. Outside my window, in this first light, those gathering bottles or cans live nowhere and without the strange comfort of familiar, kept objects. They pass in and out of my dreams where still I cannot help them. Each moment, I must watch closely all that surrounds me; it will finish before reaching full meaning. The small doves of this region which seem never to leave with dawn. This is one point of course --that I would choose not to go with you, a man of beautiful movements ground are just now in flight generated by speech. Oval, wide we talked of some gesture which forever completes itself, always toward resolve. We understood how perfectly it must have nothing to do with us. 34 · The Missouri Review FRIENDS & STRANGERS / Vivian Jeter I take their lives as my own. Sometimes my hands move following their gestures. Their smallest preferences, their most intimate memories I protect. I keep whatever
