She is humble smiles and sniffles
carries a voice that does not demand
merely asks a question
Do these words move you?
They are not her own but she wants you to see the angels
in the gutters and Whitman in a button
yellow smoke billowing out beyond the page
until eyes survey the inhabitants of a crowded
Where are the angels?
words meaning nothing and everything – all that there is
or was – not and meant—a taste of freedom
in an image
the voice of a poet reading his own lines
reminding us of the mud that floods the banks of
the great Mississippi
winding down through the south
Is Texas in the South?
Syllables and Metaphors
a poem you may not have read
she loves the words: “Omissions are not accidents”
and when everything is omitted
exploration is endless.
 “Omissions are not accidents” – Line from Marianne Moore
