Let It Remain


Let It Remain

Comfort of name,
of pleasure

freshened in
repetition, unformed

pears falling, and
the mockingbird’s

to complete

another’s song.
I will take no

from this day

but let it remain
here in the knowing,

in the tyranny
of the absolute

and its enforced
rhythm desiring

both flight and

the ecstasy
of fruit grown full.


“Let It Remain” first appeared here in September 2015.
