Maybe what I see as inequality is just
some blindness to interval
point of radiation dip
or "as if I am a lumbering / embezzling want lousy with verbs."
Ann Lauterbach's Or to begin again was published by Penguin this year and nominated for a National Book Award. Ann Lauterbach is very award winning. From her poem, Alice in the Wasteland:
This, she thinks, drifting, must be
the feeling of being young.
She could not say
in the radiance of the not yet knowable
which seemed, now a reason for youthful sorrow.
or Lauterbach: "Way over in the particularities of the evening / gold touches the back of her neck"
I am ordinary & exhausted.
Do I need to put on a coat
carry a rubber knife?
I'm half in & half out
and sort of hoisted
unlucky not sure really
