Edge and Fold XLI-XLVIII




where is a written deer

running through a written forest


-Wisława Symborska



the written man in bed

with his unwritten wife


she who has written

his figure in that place


experience that lives

only in the written


a dark brown mouse

crossing to the mirror


vacant fishermen

staring into ponds


as if to write them

naked with indifference


what is fire writing

in the house of darkness


all inner space imagined

nothing in shadow


everything that is

written by what is not



—Paul Hoover


from Edge and Fold (Apogee Press, 2006)
