O Taste and See

The world is
not with us enough.
O taste and see

the subway Bible poster said,
meaning The Lord, meaning
if anything all that lives
to the imagination's tongue,

grief, mercy, language,
tangerine, the weather, to
breathe them, bite,
savor, chew, swallow, transform

into out flesh our
deaths, crossing the street, plum, quince,
living in the orchard and being

hungry, and plucking
the fruit.

(Denise Levertov)

Rain, spittle,
low tidal
lap, mud and
murky salt
water and
two curlew.
