"Poetry, I tell my students,/is idiosyncratic. Poetry//is where we are ourselves,
/(though Sterling Brown said//“Every ‘I’ is a dramatic ‘I’”)/digging in the clam flats//for the shell that snaps,/emptying the proverbial pocketbook.//Poetry is what you find/in the dirt in the corner,//overhear on the bus, God/in the details, the only way//to get from here to there./Poetry (and now my voice is rising)//is not all love, love, love,//and I’m sorry the dog died.//Poetry (here I hear myself loudest)/is the human voice,//and are we not of interest to each other?"

Endless cycles--not all those picturesque birth/rebirth wheels, but instead the loops and forms of statues, drone machines, sushi boats and trees which spectate skating events. Within the tree, things proceed in cycles of seasons--now cold, then Spring, tomorrow Summer, Thursday blooms, Friday seed pod. The statues, meanwhile, look lost in reflection. I like the little signs at the sushi river--pay a penny, go to an afterlife of wrapped rice. 2 good videos.
