Best Poem of Kathleen Griffin


Grey-green industrial cleaner
miscalled the Tiber
washes around the frozen ship
of Aesculapius
where the snakes went ashore.

But the grassy margin survives,
and in its withered sedge
complacent ducks nest,
paddle across the polluted water,
and bottom-up feeding.

Read the full of Tiber

Big Dipper

Now Charles’ Wain hangs pendant in the sky
this clear, cold night. Folklore made the King
and Emperor a saint at times, or pictured farming
the far and stony reaches there on high
among the scattered stars, his task marked by
the homely farm-cart. What fantastic thing
in all his life could any chanson sing
that would compare with this immortality?
