Today I am Falling


A sodium pentothal landscape,
a bud about to bread open-
I want to be there, ambassador
to the visiting blossoms, first
to breathe their smothered, secret
odors. Today I am falling, falling,
falling in love, and desire
to leave this place forever.


-James Tate, from The Lost Pilot
