"Life", from "Jersy Blues, Selected Poems"

The Seine at Saint-Cloud,  Edvard Munch, 1890, The Munch Museum, Oslo


Life, my life.

Silent stream that insinuates
in the clearing, river unfolding
majestically, gravelly water of a torrent.

Life, my life.

You are the roaring waterfall,
the honed stone,
the atavist gravel bed.

Life, life, my life.

San Francisco, California, Spring 2003 

From the collection Jersey Blues, also available on iBookstoreNOOK Book, and Amazon Kindle.
