Accidents Are Very Necessary

accidents are very necessary
especially when
one is not given a true fate
I think of them as my own
special moments in time
to think that so many things
were there where I was
when they could all have been
someplace else!
I treasure
each bruise I get
from bumping into chairs or people
- January 27,1974

Songs Of Nimtollah

fresh faced. just married. newly dead
dark-skinned unmarked as yet
lying on a makeshift bed
while relatives, male
haggle ungrieving over paperwork, fees
nearby a girl, no older, is singing
where did you learn this song child?
how many deaths have you already seen?
assume a mother teaches her child lullabies
