Doubly Guided

by Ann Douglas


Man, bamboo

An apple, and parallel
being—its value

its yield
set themselves up
in the acids of summer

as earlier
in pink clouds
then white haze,

they sped through the visibilities
of conversion. So
crops bear, must bear, must
compete, key
word—compete—straining ahead
for all of us.
