Street Lamp

by† Adrienne Wolfert

The street lamp

distances the moon,

stars donít stand a chance.

Night , the siren,

†sings our false voyages.

Point of View

by† Adrienne Wolfert

††††††††††† At the bottom of the lake

the drowned watch

looks like a fellow species

to the incurious fish.

†††††††††††††††††††††††††† Scholars sift the sand, discover

each civilizationís grave atop the other.

Eternityís the name we give

†the casual castaway of what is over.
