Milton’s God
the place I-95 meets The Pike,
a ponderous thunderhead flowered—
 
stewed a minute, then flipped
like a flash card, tattered
edges crinkling in, linings so dark
with over the top bright
 
that, status, ready, on the overpass edge,
the onlooker couldn’t decide
 
till the top, or maybe then,
what was once published and what have been hidden.

The book’s identify foregrounds the anonymity it seeks via numerous capability: first, via shut statement (a concrete observed, a goshawk, a bicyclist); and, moment, through translation (satires from Horace and Catullus, and excerpts from Virgil’s Aeneid). Uniquely between modern poetry volumes, Anyone demonstrates fluency within the paradoxes of a spiritual life: “To stand someday / outdoors my religion . . . or hold ready / to be claimed in it.” Engaged with theology and the classics yet by no means abstruse, all of the whereas the poems stay grounded within the exceptional, actual global of “what it really is to believe: /  moods, part moods, / swarming, then darting loose.”

It feels illicit and somewhat right to stand across the intersection without shouting her name, or even waving.

Between his mother’s shed and the sidewalk fence lies the circle of dead grass he stalks every afternoon, gazing up and around as if freshly hurled onto the sand of Gérôme’s Colosseum. He first selects a sawed-off golf club from their wooden stand, wrapping it behind his rippling shoulders, then, as the sitar music picks up from his boom box, charms the metal stick down one arm like a rigid snake. Slow swoops towards Warrior II tame whatever rage he might have transferred onto his instrument, or it to him.
