IN THE CHEKOV STORY

by Gary Pacernick

The man never leaves the train,

as if hypnotized by the journey,

as if his destination

is to be always on the way

to somewhere else.

He is a word in a sentence

waiting to be written down.

He is no man.

He is every man.

He is life itself.

NOTHING IS PERMANENT

by Gary Pacernick

 

I take it all and give it back

to the seething changing symphony

of sounds shapes textures colors smells

seizing me with delight terror wonder

at all that is possible

to know question imagine.

More than I will ever realize

in the act of being myself.
