Paul Hoover: at the speed of attention

Fall '08 TOC

to seem also means
            no logic to the senses
life is never as full
            as the season is empty
our deaths are quite near
            also loose-fitting

small and on the verge
            love is just as full
as the season is ready
            the world is disappearing
there’s no end to nothing
            an iceberg at a time

last minute confessions
            the end of truth conditions
all the world is hurt
            but its words are sweet to savor
father’s cement impressions
            forever on his knees
