Tragedy at Sushi Siam


Today I read about poetic time and poetic space,

about how allegories are imagined and metrics not.


I read about real efforts to compose,

allusions, footnotes, tool sheds as help.


I read all this believing in it,

not knowing that tonight you would be where I was,


and I would need to come home to think about you

in recent time, in recent space.
