The dull patina in the eyes of Edward Hopper's prisoners:
Last night I dreamt about an open suitcase.
Wet butter knives spilled out on the floor,
An overturned drawer.
Her affairs lay open on the desktop, drenched and
By the suitcase ran spilled ink.
Cursive and at such a breakneck slant,
Heedless, the way an animal would charge,
Antlersdown at the creek,
Charging the adversity of All Things
It was unmistakable what she'd been thinking,
Whatever it was--we're just here to observe this reliquary.
