Poem of the Day
When dace shoaled in the DordogneTaken from 'Waterloo Teeth'...
and then exploded on his retina
When the small white heart of a radish
lodged and burned in his chest
When his tongue, like a loyal hound,
searched his gum for the familiar tooth
When the spine of the book in his hand
was all the weight of his friend
When the Tupinamban shivered and coughed
on the cobbles in old Rouen
it was always after Montaigne,
his quicksilver self already split and running
before the wonder of the next question.
