Concentric

Proust described À la recherche du temps perdu
As concentric. So is any good poem,
So is life. The look you gave me and still
Give me is concentric. A child dips a toe
Into water. Concentric. The Andrea Doria
Sinks slowly, well-photographed in so doing,
My introduction to life in New York.
Just over the hill: The Symposium.
Martian Chronicles
. A Delicate Balance.
Poetry. Genius. A toe dipping. Then
There’s Alan Ginsberg, God rest his sweet soul.
Nothing stops.
