The Idea Of 'Pear Tree'


for Robin Blaser

a pear tree forgets only itself as
an audacity

limbs recall themselves

appear to reach

one cannot see them
reaching

they may be silent but
we cannot know that toward
later sweetness they yearn
then seed a still dirt around

content to lie down
the idea of 'pear tree'
reduces to all sparks

yet

no illusion of darkness
hastens the pear

but O it tastes
