(Poetry Scales 32)
What is that shape in the shroud of the cellar?
What is that smell behind the wall?
What does she look like under that sweater?
When will that house on the cliff finally fall?
Where do the spiders go in the winter?
Who is it that keeps hanging up when they call?
Why is the grass over there so much greener?
What will things look like from up there so tall?
In life the suspense and the mysteries thrill us.
But we tend to lose interest after the denouement.
