Abstract

Jim Moore 1 Two teenagers, boy and girl, go down to the river with fishing poles: beneath calm waters the true world swims furiously towards them, so hoping to be caught. 2 Spring light on new leaves, shining like water. Somewhere right now, in this very moment, someone is dying to all this. 3 Tired, tired, almost sixty, I step outside for a moment and rest in the wind. 102 4 Azaleas in bloom: a woman catches me staring at her staring at them. She smiles at me anyway, the thief caught red-handed. 5 7am and the lover leaves his lover's house barefoot to go back to his basement room across the alley. I nod hello and continue to pick the lilies of the valley which just yesterday began to bloom. 6 I vow to write seven poems a day, look down and see a crow rising into the thick rain on 5th Avenue as if pulled up by invisible strings, and already there are only six to go . . . 103 7 Vuillard's Interior/Woman Sewing: is it for this glimpse of a calm world that I paid my twelve dollars and entered the museum: her head
