From Erosion:


SAN SEPOLCRO


Jorie Graham

. . . . How clean


the mind is,


holy grave. It is this girl


by Piero


della Francesca, unbuttoning


her blue dress,


her mantle of weather,


to go into


labor. Come, we can go in.


It is before


the birth of god. No-one


has risen yet


to the museums, to the assembly


line bodies


and wings to the open air


market. This is


what the living do: go in.


It's a long way.


And the dress keeps opening


from eternity


to privacy, quickening.


Inside, at the heart,


is tragedy, the present moment


forever stillborn,


but going in, each breath


is a button


coming undone, something terribly


nimble-fingered


finding all of the stops.

Jorie Graham grew up in Italy and now lives in northern California.She has received grants from the Ingram-Merrill Foundation, the Bunting Institute, and the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation.Her first book, Hybrids of Plants and of Ghosts (Princeton, 1980), won the Great Lakes Colleges Association Award as the best first book of poems published in 1980.
