Josef Kaplan – Four Poems

Josef Kaplan
Four Poems


Place I

A most played point
in space, of, say,
all these Movi(ng)s,
this side of the

rail: phone poles
crossed out, thought
lines reticent. Of A,
say: parking lot

dispersed, lettered.



Place II

Plow-
hand enters

the earth- finds
a con (torn
ligament); I

have to
polish-

these eyes,
so, fluence
of roots; too

much to
depend on:
            ground-

            covers
            stalks



Place IV

ever, ever-

more         sitting to
                 i run into
                 a field

                 with
                 my head

down stilled
streets ahead

most points are

                 reticent
                 from

a train



Place VIII
