“Night walks through our days and no one notices.
We like to think of the intricate beauty of a swallow’s flight,
but it is only a desperate, open mouthed search for insects.
There are three truths you have taught me here: that
our shadows will desert us for other, better objects;
that Time steps away from the clock like the song of a blind bird;
and that our maps are the empty husks of desire.” — Richard Jackson, from “Filling in the Graves at a Cherokee Site,” in The New Bread Loaf Anthology of Contemporary American Poetry, ed. by Michael Collier and Stanley Plumly (Middlebury College Press, 1999)
