First Known When Lost: Ezra Pound

And the days are not full enough
And the nights are not full enough
And life slips by like a field mouse
Not shaking the grass.

Ezra Pound, Personae (1926).

Without A Song – Supremes

~ that field of corn would never ever see a plough / that field of corn would be deserted now / . . . now I know what makes the rain to fall, the grass so tall . . . all my loves for bv, cro, re, and cfv, all their loves, for me – DF

Joanna Klink
STARS, SCATTERSTILL. Constellations of people and quiet.

Those nights when nothing catches, nothing also is artless.

I walked for hours in those forests, my legs a canvas of scratches,

trading on the old hopes—we were meant to be lost. But being lost

means not knowing what it means. Inside the meadow is the grass,

rich with darkness. Inside the grass is the wish to be rooted, inside the rain

the wish to dissolve. What you think you live for you may not live for.

One star goes out. One breath lifts inside a crow inside a field.
