Best Poem of Kathy Fagan

Snow Globe

after Encounters at the End of the World by Werner Herzog

With booms & chirrs seals
speak under the ice of an ocean
frozen over.
Stationary ocean. Electrified song.
Color: snow day with autumn
leaves inside it,
glassene sheers of cantaloupe & kiwi on
lavender, gunmetal, jetwing—
When you rode the elephant through
the puncture, the first syllable of my name
parted the deep with your beautiful hand.
Sparrow shuddered in her dustbath, swath of pleasure
raked up
& out.
This is where I sat
in the avalanche.
