Two Short Poems by Mimi Khalvati

Circumstances are such that I will be away from the internet beginning February 4 for what is likely a period of a couple of weeks or possibly a bit more. Until then, two brief poems by a poet who is increasingly a favorite of mine, Mimi Khalvati.

With finest needles
finest beads

lawn and dew are making
a tapestry of water...

* * *

Curling her tail
and staring

not quite sure who
I was

how many kittens
I too had had, stalking

past as disdainfully
as blackness

warrants, this

is what she
left me with:

and silence.
