I was a bird when you wanted a wife.
So I flew, collecting what I knew of wives—
hotel keys to unlock
the lace they lay across their down-
less bodies, champagne
corks to keep their mouths
from buzzing all the flowers.

Art is not a handicraft, it is the transmission of feeling the artist has experienced.
