Three Poems, by Mark Goodwin


Place

whether it be bud
or just 

twig tip at

the cent
re of a 

spin

ning weather or

some ape’s
glance or 

rub of finger

tip against

if it is a

flung purse or
bag or pock 

et of 

land wet

poetry is 

not as ‘A’
stands 

in relation

to ‘B’ nor
as ‘tree’ 

stands
for (or 

in

for) some
root 

ed bran
ched wood 

en plan    t but

poetry is
an e 

vent felt

as a
shape a 

throat rotates

into a vor
tex of a 

word

‘ ear ’


 

stepped

over a stone
placed between 

Said’s interior lamplight &
Unsaid’s far out en 

mesh 

ments of d

ark
