Curl by Diane Seuss


No longer at home in the world
and I imagine
never again at home in the world.
Not in cemeteries of bogs
churning with bullfrogs.
Or outside the old pickle shop.
I once make myself
at home on that street,
and the street after that,
and the boulevard. The avenue.
I don’t need to explain it to you.
It seems wrong
to curl now within the confines
of a poem. You can’t hide f
rom what you made
inside what you made
or so I’m told.
