gull’s broken cry

Pond Song 4.1


To be finite is to be good, not to be defective, even though the finite needs what is beyond itself, and points beyond itself to what it lacks. G&B 59


gull’s broken cry __ sun moves in cloud

mudflats glitter__the tide goes out


lack brings me here__in the overflow

ice cracks underfoot__ex nihilo


much is given__beyond metaphor

the light changes__dabbling ducks mutter
