JEAN GENET ~






R E A D      M E


Actually, not a book just for "fans."

The Criminal Child is an excellent introduction

to Genet and the essay/visit with Giacometti

is a charm.

WILLIAM STAFFORD ~

 



A Letter Not Even To Deliver




The world often has a quiet look.

I go down in the orchard quietly

to work every day, because trees keep

trouble away and a grove makes quiet work.


But a jagged glimpse can come — say, when a bird sings

down a row, or over toward a hill. I bow

to near views, and listen close, for this one day:

splendor is not for daily things.


And a bowed back is a disguise. I remember you, fair.

If you visit me, come some quiet way.

There might be an instant; the light might flame —

be quiet then. We are not too try far.


Only the brownest birds that come here belong here.
