SPRING (after Mary Ruefle's The Hand)



SPRING

after Mary Ruefle

the teacher asks a question
your hand is not correct

she asks again
tree branches, feathers
air-conditioning
robin hung
hung by the neck

you look out the window
the answers you ask yourself and your life

your littlest finger
the little beauty
drama and light without fire

*

after Mary Ruefle's "The Hand" and with thanks to Translation Telephone
