Palinode (translation, passway, glass)
What falters in translation? The dove’s silhouette resides
on the window three months after the sudden refusal. I
observe wingprints, the skull’s curve, a history of assumptions
angled in the moment of impact. And after, residue. Light’s
incident rests. One body whispers another’s shape and the
next rumbles through the narrowing passway. Traitorous,
I call it fact. I name it truth, and naming it, reverse the coat.
I name it truth, but considered denial, root of the renegade’s

Over $70K Raised for Vendor After Police Seize His Money | NBC Chicago

Her husband with so little hair…
lady writers of the poem
and Bank personnel know him,
He has hidden savoir-faire?

And a few men, beside…

From his poetic feats,
Poetry is on a rising tide!
A poet must carefully,
Avoid marital calamity…

And to others watch out how closely!
This morning, I’m reading news reports about people being fit or unfit for their jobs.
What makes somebody fit or unfit? I wonder. I also wonder what else I’m going to fit into today’s blog post.
The weather around here does not fit my expectations for mid-April. I’m continuing to fit into my winter coat as I brave the cold, rainy days and nights.
Today, many people will be fitting themselves into running shoes and into the crowds at the Boston Marathon. I’m assuming some people will get fit and others might throw a fit because of traffic and other obstacles.
