Cid Corman

from poems published in American Poetry Review 29, 4 (July/August 2000):

Silence is more than
we can handle--at least now.
It is the handle.

What sense is there to
be made of this? Or trying
to make sense of this?

Arent we getting a
way from the subject here? There
where we always were.
