Poem for April 10, 2008 – Paralyzed by a Life of Losses

Paralyzed by a Life of Losses

Everything’s on hold. In today’s rain, memories
grow their long tendrils
around and through this moment, which radiates
its own roots, entangling the giant forms
I see always, somewhere: eye, cat,
hawk, sun, stone, and that creek
that, once fished in, forever flows.
The first blade of grass still greets my mornings.
The absence is mine.
–Basil Cartryte

Comments:
Another heteronym (see the poem for April 8). Basil fancies himself part of the avant-garde. He made this poem from a random selection of words.
