Lilliput Review 95

Riding the Curved Bowl


   We’re traveling together so we can’t see

   we’re traveling at the speed of light – –

   our feet are years from our eyes;

   To observers standing in another place,

   on fulcra different from ours,

   we look like we might be standing still,

   when we’re leaving before we arrived.

                                    from Poems to Eat and Say

                                       from Octavio Paz

   Glowing butterflies:

   one dreaming, one awake; all

   of us tossed by wind.

Leonard Cirino


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Floe Edge

   more men without faces

   heading away from

 

   where sharp sticks

   each with a collar

 

   of some animal whose

   paws seem to be

 

   holding them

Lyn Lifshin

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                          The Widow's Shadow

   Keeping a life of wind

   from a rain of words

   she kneels before a cathedral

   of crossed hands and blurs

   into the ink-stained landscape,

   shaking a white tablecloth

   of weather for dinner.

 This moth fluttering against

 the window screen.  I could go on

 killing ‘til the end of time

 and never be satisfied

knew death

was a flurry

of crows

in a field

of gold
