    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 Sin Originates Them

“One morning I found that if I held ear
To speaker, I could detect gulls screeching
Distantly behind Debussy’s Lent,
Mélancolique et doux.” This hour, with sun’s
Frozen architecture off Manhattan,
Ice of moments pursuing light beyond
Origin of day and those cries—woke holding her
Hand as she dreamed alone under a sky.
