sweet home, "out of many - one"


I looked into the room a moment ago,
and this is what I saw—
my chair in its place by the window,
the book turned facedown on the table.
And on the sill, the cigarette
left burning in its ashtray.
Malingerer! my uncle yelled at me
so long ago. He was right.
I've set aside time today,
same as every day,
for doing nothing at all.

by Raymond Carver


I glanced around the studio today
and saw relics from the past
collecting dust -
so I must
up and liberate
before the next dawn
the phoenix inside, not yet born
from layers of ashes and dust of yesterday.
