This Close
by Dorianne Laux

Listen to Eileen Myles read her poem, And Then the Weather Arrives. (I’ve included an excerpt of my favorites lines.)

Come here
and share the rain
with me. You.
Isn’t it wonderful to hear
the universe
shudder. How old it all,
everything
must be.

How slow it goes, steaming
coffee, marvelous morning,
the tiniest hair
on the trees’ arms
coming visible.


Mary Oliver
