Poem for June 6

June 16, 2012 § Leave a comment


For Stephen M.  Meyer

The world is still
not over

though we devour it
and fill it up

Holes here
some places entirely gone

Collapsed livingness

A perishable record
deep from within us

A wildness tamed
into a ghostly sleep

This is not a prophecy

This is obviously
A world clothed

in a double mantle

-Pam Rehm, The Larger Nature (Flood Editions, 2011)
