Collecting Evidence

COLLECTING EVIDENCE won the Yale Series of Younger Poets prize and was published as Volume 65 in that series by the Yale University Press.


In Murasaki's time
they wept at the sunsets

It was easy

If you were the Prince
& in love

Calligraphy could do it

The total life
in the nuance of a line

& later

The sun that had changed

The cold light defining shadow
Poetry leading nowhere

Occurrence made meaningless
The injustice of history

Not that it mattered

Or the light
they wept at

COLLECTING EVIDENCE is currently out of print.
