La Cour Giacometti

After Lucretius, the sculptor
seems to be saying with his
long supple figures of iron
     testimony to the original curve,
     molecular motion and pull of the moon,
     all elemental undulations in fact,
that nothing is constant under the sun.

 

Birds

There were birds in the room when he awoke
that morning, one on the dresser, the other
perched at the foot of the bed. He broke
from sleep suddenly at the song, the flutter

of wings startled him. He sat upright in
bed, uncertain of his dream, unable
to remember it clearly; his wife contin­-
ued to sleep soundly beside him; the fable

had not penetrated her peace, he thought.
He thought to dream further his escape, fleeing
the entire bizarre episode; he would not
wake her: with the story to tell, her laughing

and all, he remained still. Then she awoke,
and of a strange melodious dream she spoke.
