    Good critics often write some of the best poetry. Hilbert is no exception. He is a poet of great depth and verbal dexterity without being obscure beyond comprehension. Always an interesting read. -LP

The Haywain

Bosch’s demons, roosting against
The luminous sky of the Low Countries,
Emerge shaped of stone or dirty light,
Perched atop the haywain blowing
Long slender horns. These jigging imps,
Eager to guide peasants from their

Rustic scenery to another unknowable one,
Are themselves missing or far
