Ethan Levitas

This is just to say

something about movement, about motion and moment,
and battered steel in the afternoon;

something about frozen faces and public spaces,
about traces of poems passed, and the desperation
of intersecting introspection;

something about pressed flesh and violence,
etched in glass and bright with light, proof
the smolder of a summer thunder;

something about being mystified by certain circumstances
that always bring me back for you.
