1979-1980s poems
december 7-8 1979


in the bed of a poet

she gives us her poems
   and tales of the people
   who live their lives
   for her to love
she gives us her bed
   and blankets

her bed fills us
   with poems we write
   on each other
   poems with long
   and short nonwords
her bed turns back
   into white blanket paper
