Wrestles us to ground

Major poetry wrestles us to ground
To the unwanted ground of our being
Twists and turns out our bowels
Wrenches and disjoints us
Wrests perchance a hint of our real
From living days
From our dying

Grandchild seek

Grandchild seek
to be of use
to your grandchildren
to life
to larger yet

Skill-worthy

Dying—the suffering of dying—
is skill-worthy
and you worthy of that skill
study those who are
at least don’t back away
don’t run
stand in that raging wind
for such a poet
this work is not difficult
it is the hardest could be
—and there are no promises

:- Doug.

Wrestle with the wonder

Wrestle with the wonder
the surprise of this moment
what you knew about life is dying

:- Doug.
