these several years we   remember each other   only at night    in sleep our bodies knowing    what conscious hides   in the dervish whirl    of family

Konya morning   renewed from disaster    chock full of beauty    outside Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi    a sufi brushes the sweepings   of last night’s ecstacy   his body rotating    slowly in the dust

in the naked truth    of things we are    always fixed in the moment    mastering each syllable    like a new appliance

everything unfinished the newspaper    ripped into sections the floor    swept up to dunes   I blow clouds with my   breath lean on the very    edge of a balancing chair

life in the afterlife    of love a dawn    service the medal miniatures    piece of shrapnel   tucked inside the cheek   the grass wet with    night’s own memory
