Instructions for a Poem


Twelve months, twelve pieces of sky


A house with one door, a river always moving


A box of old watch parts, a dark star and its planets


Over the garden wall a woman's laughter, throaty, musical


An old sailing ship in a case, spiderweb for rigging


Ship's rigging, sub-atomic particles colliding


A box of old watch parts, time's river moving


A woman's laughter, twelve pieces of sky
