A poem of which TSE would perhaps be enamored.
Triple Moments of Light
By Brenda Hillman
“then we consider how early tired stars gave way to carbon molecules a short time after the start of time & now carbon makes its way in all life as the present tense makes its way in poetry, the sludge in the vats where the hydrocarbonoclastic bacteria break things down to unending necessities
of which Dante writes
of the middle of hell”
Do read what Brenda has to say about the poem.
