Poem: On the lift

On the Lift

There’s not a better place

on earth than sitting here

with Bill McKibben

 

in County Tire’s waiting room.

Our cars hoisted on two

lifts. Two men behind

 

the glass, swapping out

our sets of pray this winter’s-

over-tires. Balancing the others

 

with weights found

on fishing lines, the balanced

It’s Winter Again

Gratitude to you, young woman,

sliding your squeegee across the glass,

wiping its blade dry again.

 

Praise for the care you’re taking

applying yourself side to side.

Inside the circle, the track

 

of our field house. We both find

ourselves inside, April surprising

the fields. It’s snowing!

 

More than the redwings like,

Spring's Demonstration

Better than the return

of the Redwing Blackbirds

Bob says, jogging by me,

 

this March morning.

In his Khaki shorts.

First green shoots

 

inching up in the road’s

ditch. Two deer across

Spark’s field, browsing

 

thawing hay grass, their breath

visible as glass.

Better in the sense

 

he means we’re here

to say hello, me

Gary Margolis: In honor of Shakespeare's First Folio visting Middlebury College

In Honor of Shakespeare’s First Folio

Visiting the Middlebury College Museum 

 

Inside the box, under glass,

the air ‘s 1623 again. The paper

we’re told, woven from a pauper’s

 

shirt. Each folio a worn fingerprint.

I’m standing behind a class

of fidgeting Cornwall boys wanting

 

to touch the glass. To not be told

when to open their lunch boxes.

I won’t cast one vote for a camel-

 

haired coat. I’d rather be thrown-out

in the snow and live in my state

of standing up, saying no.

 

It doesn’t know my neighbors

and I love sleeping in the cold

like an electable deer. I could

 

say doe, if I was sure what I saw

stepping in next March to our school

gym. Where we stand up to speak

Accord

Pleasant, isn’t it, December’s January

thaw? The snow that isn’t here, sand and salt

still mountains in the town’s bins. Tire

 

chains hanging on the walls. Our road

commissioner sleeping in. My neighbor

mowing his confusing lawn. In March

 

I’m sure we’ll keep arguing what’s causing

this, the geese not knowing to go south

Poem: I found an ornament

I found an ornament

 

by the side of the road.

And wedged it into the bark

 

of a maple tree. Hoping,

I suppose, a driver would see

a shining, lost thing

 

from the hood of his truck.

A chrome ram’s bust.

He would see driving home,

 

be curious enough to stop,

to think what is that thing

doing there. That tap, that metal

November Street

The geese can’t quite tell

where they’re going one field

to the next, looking for wheel-

ruts and cornstalks, a wet place

 

to spend the night.

The moon having risen,

the stars somehow fallen.

Telling isn’t it, how even

 

they can’t navigate

without one of them leading,

sensing there’s a field

Poem: Fences without borders

Fences Without Borders

 

My neighbor leans a shovel against his wild

apple, so it appears he, or someone, can shovel

a tree-full of drops under the electric fence.

 

The cows wander over this fifth day

of October our government is making excuses

for the bombs they dropped undercover.

 

The cows risk themselves for sweet, rotting apples.

So we can see bodies stacked by a trunk.

Sea of White Apple Blossoms

With all this presidential hopeful fear

of uninvited immigrants, I’m happy

to be standing in line at customer

 

service, behind a Jamaican man, wiring

home money to his family on the island.

Seeing his smooth hands, the apple-picking

 

kind, a stem between his teeth, his Jamaican

toothpick. He and his friends wear their famous

knitted pullover hats, in this fall time
