Poetry and Poetics
Sometimes the line is crisp.
It is the ice dance of a cold shadow,
The metal cut that makes a sound
Like a dry edge.
Other times the line is a dusty drift
Of powder, a group of hairs that
Across hills of fiber and fine cotton.
The line is a chalk drive
Through the time
Of a hoarse cry.
