Morning Mtns, 1973

May 6th, 2012 by Brendan Wolfe · No Comments

This poem, “Va. Sun. AM. Dec. ’73” by Eleanor Ross Taylor, was published in the New Yorker on July 18, 1977:

morning mtns &
interstitial deer
sheets flick
wedding ring clicks
against the headboard

things are disappearing forever
mtns behind the mounting pines
deer shot
wedding rings flung in drawers
Suns. no diff from rest of wk.
Va. no diff rest of world

In dead-land nothing changes.
