Three Poems by Simon Perchik, a Sampler & Link—These Are Lovely Poems!


Three Poems

Simon Perchik


You still eat roots the way each footstep
put together this hillside
as if it was once a pond and slowly

dried for the afternoon–a simple life
when each meal stays warm
though you were lowered with the same rope

mourners bring as in Here it is
and the grass flows clearer
than the way you go around

with both hands folded as if your grave
was born joined to these others
sweetened by them and time to time.
