Unknown Sun
'light which is not sum' —Norma Cole, Mars

The workaround or aura
Not like repetition

When we get to the final sun
The maps are water the water gold

He would not honor me
You explain then against

The disbelief displayed by the character
I couldn't know him

But knew love and
Know it through knowledge

"Love never falls off whether prophecies
will be abolished whether tongues stopped"

Announced as the fact
Redolent of what was

The defining addition
More than the parts

Unprecedented
Ardor also not

Adding up to
Sun or son to sum

The outcome
Unknowable

Perfect and
Unavowed

The same sound
Unknown sum

A Franc Sonic
for Jerry Estrin

Snow covers
The hills one by one
Our neighborhood
Characters become
San Francisco 1874
Words later language
A photograph
At home when
Light writes 1974
Or 1979
We move where
The Lives of My Books
Pages accumulate
Not legible as themselves
Historical time 1989
Startled leaves us
Unafraid though
Overgrown
Died in 1993
Moved in 1994
In pink stone
Earlier in 'The Park'
Wrote shells and cherubs
The cathedral
The fountain

Quiet Mourning
for Leslie Scalapino

I keep gardenias
By the Kwan Yin
Though magnolia was her flower
On my steps where
In ordinary life
Last but once
I saw her alive
We had tea and sweets
Stuffed with bean paste
Years gone
Following pleasure
Wherever it worked
We had tea again
And she by then
Only angel food
And determination
Would live still
But wildly
If she could
