Inside the hum

           After the impact
words come hurtling down
a black-red funnel
and smash against shuttered eyes

the circuit closes:
inside once more they organize
like a charm
some white paper
delivers them pulsating
to a curious    still    life

—Riccardo Duranti
from Poems in lieu of an essay on poems
