DPF / Violi

For bent trees flies and bees, from poetryfoundation.org.

from Resolution / by Paul Violi (1944-2011)

Whereas the porch screen sags from
the weight of flowers (impatiens) that grew
against it, then piles of wet leaves,
then drifted snow; and

 

Whereas, now rolled like absence in its
drooping length, a dim gold wave,
sundown’s last, cast across a sea of clouds
and the floating year, almost reaches
the legs of the low-slung chair
