Richard Stilwell

(09-24-1957 / Mooresville, North Carolina)

At The High Museum

Come here,
No here,
Over here,
Look at me,
Me too,

Who first?
Who last?
Which way do I go?

They take my breath,
I get dizzy,
And turn to go,
But I cannot,
So I turn back.
Where I came face to face with her,
The perfect picture of composure,

She is too beautiful,
I lose composure,
And walk past__ only to,
Have it happen again.
And again__

Poem of the Day


Our life is twofold; Sleep hath its own world,
A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
