National Poetry Month - Day 6: Pam Rehm


To meet her
        to find her mind
bound to falling behind
when reminded that

we killed all the land
now every line demands
that we find the creatures
these houses are standing on
        every house and its features
Every day dementia


from To Give It Up, Sun & Moon Press, 1995. 1994 winner of the National Poetry Series competition.
