Abstract

Samuel Green Postcard: Sept. 9/01 A nuthatch slams into the bay window. The ledge catches her, keeps her from the cat's mouth, but she stays there, stunned, caught by the betrayal of air turned suddenly solid. How could she ever move past this moment without the grace of necessity? How could any of us? Postcard: September 11/01 The rain-split plums have been falling in the orchard, the ground so littered now the numbers no longer have meaning. Postcard: Oct. 17/01, NYC At Battery Park my friend & I lean into a harsh wind while he points out the Statue of Liberty. Behind us, armed soldiers in forest camouflage are grimly watching. We are fresh from Ground Zero, & coughing into the wind. Neither of us mentions what it is comes out of our lungs. Postcard: Oct. 18/01, NYC On the subway an old Polish man takes me in charge, rides two stops past his own to make certain I find the right place to get off. When I try to thank him, he shakes his head no, forget it. No one, he says, should be lost when someone else knows the way. Postcard: Jan. 8/02 In the upturned
