the snow covers everything. / its chaste presence / silvers the land: / / love the bright / glitter everywhere. [Douglas Barbour - "Incarnalba iii"]
These words are tired / of being / words / They refuse to sit here / pretending / they can't move / off the page [Lorna Crozier - "This is a Love Poem Without Restraint"]
From time to time I watch you closely, with new eyes, / appreciating how much of you I haven't seen / / and I'm no longer sure whether it's what I know of you / that attracts me, or what I might find. [Rhona McAdam - "Infinite Beasts"]
he saws the proverbial logs / of his sleep / with a chainsaw; / his snores have loosened / plaster on the ceiling, / have homogenized the left-overs / in the refrigerator, / have shattered light bulbs / and frightened plants to death. [Leona Gom - "Men, Snoring"]
We want to stop / at 9 a.m. and sunny, or at least / start from there, once. [Zoë Landale - "What About a Valentine?"]
I've heard one Victorian lady / arranged her bookshelves / with a grand propriety. / Careful to separate / the male and female authors. / Who knew what might happen / if blind old Milton / was left to stand too long / by the wit of Austen? / What illicit catastrophe, / mingling between the covers / in the dark of night? [Shannon Stewart - "Books"]
