Staying Home

When the tip of your tongue

touches the tip of eternity

you touch death

for the first time while alive.


The light when

the barn door opens

shines on a fat

white chicken, one

of William Carlos Williams’.

Old Man of the Self

made Song now

now we cannot sing

of the sovereign tide

washing across

the Americas. No

so much depends

upon that light when

the barn door opens.

Three of Clubs - Walt Whitman
