One poet

slips out



what each sentence

begins to say —



a magician

freeing himself



from the underwater

cage.

"They tell me I got this

Alzheimer's. I don't



know," he says

to the moderator,



as if doubt

were a way



to catch

one's fall





          3



Folds

in the clear



curtains, columns

at dusk



scored by slant

ripples,



marked by stacked

apexes,



making some points
