    On Turning Ten

    The whole idea of it makes me feel
    like I'm coming down with something,
    something worse than any stomach ache
    or the headaches I get from reading in bad light--
    a kind of measles of the spirit,
    a mumps of the psyche,
    a disfiguring chicken pox of the soul.

    You tell me it is too early to be looking back,
    but that is because you have forgotten
    the perfect simplicity of being one
    and the beautiful complexity introduced by two.
    But I can lie on my bed and remember every digit.
    At four I was an Arabian wizard.
    I could make myself invisible
    by drinking a glass of milk a certain way.
    At seven I was a soldier, at nine a prince.

    But now I am mostly at the window
    watching the late afternoon light.
    Back then it never fell so solemnly
    against the side of my tree house,
    and my bicycle never leaned against the garage
    as it does today,
    all the dark blue speed drained out of it.

    This is the beginning of sadness, I say to myself,
    as I walk through the universe in my sneakers.
    It is time to say good-bye to my imaginary friends,
    time to turn the first big number.

    It seems only yesterday I used to believe
    there was nothing under my skin but light.
    If you cut me I could shine.
    But now when I fall upon the sidewalks of life,
    I skin my knees. I bleed. read more »

    A Happy Childhood

    Blur

    Storms of perfume lift from honeysuckle,
    lilac, clover—and drift across the threshold,
    outside reclaiming inside as its home.
    Warm days whirl in a bright unnumberable blur, read more »

    A child is

    A child is a house that parents inhabit.
    How clear the small objects,
    how the toys excite one's pity, little clothes read more »

    Pledge

    What is the Grass?

    The child asks, bringing it to me in handfuls.

    Don't Let Me Be Lonely

    There was a time I could say no one I knew well had died. This is not to suggest no one died. When I was eight my mother became pregnant. She went to the hospital to give birth and returned without the baby. read more »

    Alone

    From childhood's hour I have not been
    As others were; I have not seen
    As others saw; I could not bring
    My passions from a common spring. read more »
