I ... entered the poem of life, whose purpose is ... simply to witness the beauties of the world, to discover the many forms that love can take. (Barabara Blackman in 'Glass After Glass')

The Unconscious Comes Up

Half asleep, I recall
that teacher


tormented us children
long ago.


I drift into a thought
of murder—

what! —

pushing her down a cliff …
gentle me.
