post for dinah hawken

"Bev, it's easy in this crudely driven city to betray what is delicate

and what is deep. I'm writing 'delicate' and 'deep' to you because they're exhausted

words and to avoid them now I know would be a greater betrayal."

-- Dinah Hawken, from 'Writing Home'

pet light

Is this cat made of light? Yes,

made of light, just like the far side of my face.

And the sofa, woven storm, is a background to pet against,

to pet light, light against light,

and ears with which to hear the fight.
