Best Poem of Joanne Kyger

Night Palace

'The best thing about the past

is that it's over'

when you die.

you wake up

from the dream

that's your life.

Then you grow up

and get to be post human

in a past that keeps happening

ahead of you


Read the full of Night Palace


The grasses are light brown
and ocean comes in
long shimmering lines
under the fleet from last night
which dozes now in the early morning

Here and there horses graze
On somebody's acreage
