Volume 2, Number 2 -- February, 1997

For Gary Thompson—May 1990

I dreamt of a Celtic knight

in green and inky armor

who colored in me

those pains which only

empty poets can know.

Wasn't it Aristotle

who implied

that you must be

born as a poet

or there was no hope?

I thought

he was only joking.
