From A Table That Goes On for Miles

MISERICORDIA

Because of the hills, we feel

lonely, because the river smells

closer than it is.

 

The country is only one language.

We say comfort and mean

that though there are more stars here

than we can imagine,

there is still one small, cream room.

It is small enough.

This is one kind of writing:

At the base of every hill

I imagine there is water.

 

But the water is farther off.
