Poem: I won't vote for a camel-

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

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

Poem: Celebrating 100 Years of Middlebury Language Schools

Celebrating 100 Years of Middlebury Language Schools

Can I say a word I haven’t said before,

      speak in a field’s blossoming tongue?

Pledge to keep my pledge, speak

      only in the school I’m in? To learn one

phrase more, to sound as if I was born there

 

and not here among (oh, I’m saying it)

      the world of Vermont’s girosoles.

Poem: Raiding the feeders

Raiding the Feeders

 

The bear I saw was the shadow

of my father passing my room,

locking his briefcase, walking out the door

 

at dawn. And not this spring country one

who apparently didn’t eat enough berries

and fish to keep him asleep. These days

 

I want to run out of my winter stored fat.

And rise early in my neighborhood,

to see who was there by his or her tracks.

Early, Early Mud Season

 

I’d like to disappear, too,

for a few years

in that rut

 

the cars and tractors make

of my road, the pick-up trucks

lose themselves in.

 

That trench, that furrow,

that man-made cave.

I’d like to feel walled-in

 

in clay. A bowl

on a potter’s wheel

down there with the stones.

Poem: Deb Smith's one of the most joyous women

Deb Smith's one of the most joyous women

I know, painting a living room, retouching

a guest bathroom. Or sitting by her potter’s

wheel, spinning that round table, her hands

 

urging the clay into a bowl or a funereal urn.

I don’t want you to be surprised when I tell you

she’s designed a catalogue in her mind

 

of matching pairs, for pet owners and their dogs

and cats, so they can be stored forever
