Quantum Wave Adjustment Kit

Being you is
Barefoot on broad
Piers at night rejoicing
Where beach fires
Compose wishes.
Being me is
Years ago noticing
How much pliers
Look like fishes.

Ponchielli, Religion Too

A steel spoon
Over an oak table,
Wine refracting
Lamplight red on
Two cookies in a
Blue glass bowl--
1952 recording,
Callas, "La
Gioconda" on the
Radio-- who knows
If I have a soul?

My Stunt Double, Part Two

She talks about friends
Our age --generations:
"They had children who
Had children who are
Absolutely crazy..."
Never have I heard the
Old Testament expressed
So succinctly, and,
Because it is
Is a book of Biblical
Proportions, I should
listen to her oftener.
