"He examined his conscience. It said: I’m out of options. Please yourself."
Maxine Chernoff, from “Scene”

unless called upon,
grace enters as requested,
lands next to you, grasped,
as if love were a reflex
simple as weather.

"I often thought that if I had had to live in the trunk of a dead tree, with nothing to do but look up at the sky flowing overhead, little by little I would have gotten used to it."
