Ready Argument
Joseph Somoza



Because I want to read
what I feel,
or think/feel, and how
the weather's
doing this morning,
perpetual first
morning of the HERE & NOW.
Locust branches swaying
in a breeze
I had forgotten how
some of the leaves,
some of their faces,
glisten.
Memory's not the same,
wasn't,
can't be. This bird
twittering for some present
need, having eaten yesterday,
slept, woken to
this.
And you ask
what
words can do.
And you ask
what words can do?
