A string of raindrops
dangling
from an iron bar reveals
opportunities for
clarity.

***

As if you could escape
by following

the path you carved
there

to its prescribed end.

***

As if, after all,

the thing that comes to mind
squared
times inertia

equaled the “real.”

—Rae Armantrout (1947-), from “Worth While,” “Inscription,” “Equals” (Versed [2009])
