Paul Hoover: unreality’s rare

Fall '08 TOC

in what state do we feel
            and where is the border
perhaps the eyes have it
            thinking’s only seeing

dressed in black for mourning
            our shadows are backwards
no remedy, not today
            what will be has been
the old are always few
            the new ones many

lovely wearing a gun
            to the theater and dinner
wearing scotch plaid
            found in the alley dead
identical pictures seek difference
            a camera is not the world
