The Table

The Table (For Rod Anstee)

“The table isn’t immortal, though it hums a tune of going on forever.”

–Ron Padgett

 

my nerves fail watching the soccer

I read and listen instead

 

it doesn’t work; we lose

 

late

 

again

 

at least Ron Padgett is in the world

saying the things he says

in just the way that he says them

at the moment we need to hear them
