“For the Children (from In the Unknown)”

 

Pavement side, a mother and child
and a poet’s footsteps exactly coincide:
she’s saying to him ‘birds live in trees,
and squirrels…’ as we pass, and I can’t resist
‘…and poets’, I add, as her sentence hangs
still deep in my one-handed text to you
about how everything changes… ‘and poets’
she echoes, smiling back briefly, like it’s
the most ordinary moment in a magical
wholly unforseeable world —
which it is.
