No one wants to take the stillborn robin
curled in its blue egg, caught
between dreaming and its first morning,
and put it back in its mother’s nest.
No one wants to be the one to put their hand
in the lion’s mouth. It waits beyond the fire.
Something always waits beyond the fire —
not a bride, but a white dress. Not a foal,
but its bones. Something waits inside a black tent
in a yellowed field — an archangel with two hearts
in his chest. When he asks for a sacrifice, I offer
another woman’s son. The blood on my hands
becomes wine. No one wants to claim the child
bathed in flame, turning its new body toward the trees.

“History and elegy are akin. The word “history” comes from an ancient Greek verb ίστωρειν meaning “to ask.” One who asks about things – about their dimensions, weight, location, moods, names, holiness, smell – is an historian. But the asking is not idle. It is when you are asking about something that you realize you yourself have survived it, and so you must carry it, or fashion it into a thing that carries itself.”

“Many nights I wake in a shudder thinking of some atrocity of mine. I bring home minute pinpricks which magnify in the middle of the night into gaping wounds.”
