The Darker Fall: Poems

by

The Darker Fall: Poems Cover

 

 

Excerpt

Sublet, Pitt Street The graininess of humid heat, steady to her windowbox, parsley gone riot. And each marigold a ruched density caught in nettings of dill. The window, immovably half-closed. Though cries from the park pool, a cool depth smelling of acetone at dark. Though the upswept gingko leaves, pestered into notice just before a storm's hard collapse. This month, I sleep and wake to objects assigned someone else's manners. Given winters, the face of fear among her three African masks, its white eyes, cage-bar teeth. In a box, spring's silk scarves. Year-round Christmas lights on the bed's canopy. And in the photographs room after room, her mother fading into approximateness, older, then even older, the face bones overexpressed by age. Exhausted by heat some nights, I have marked that difference frame to frame, wished a means of telling what occupied her living in between, and arrived only at my afternoon radio's melancholy, some onions on a plate, a sunsetleft in the sky like eyeshadow on a lid. What she knew of need imagined now as our own need, continuing, the way our grocer's plantains, our street's boombox merengue, stand for what the tenement museum, blocks from here, remembers: A yellowed letter's Send word. The man cross-armed, posed before his new store. And the glance of light from the camera's flash, touching on each sleeper on the floor.

Winner of the 2001 Kathryn A. Morton Prize in Poetry.

"Barot’s mature linguistic skills really come down to a metaphorical and musical intelligence that refuses to value one element over another, that will not let the language or the longing take over."—From the Foreword by Stanley Plumly

"This is a book of lyric wonders: wit that turns dark, darkness that blazes up again in music and story."—Eavan Boland Rick Barot is currently Jones Lecturer in Poetry at Stanford University. He was born in the Philippines and grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. He attended Wesleyan University, the Writers’ Workshop at the University of Iowa, and Stanford, where he was a Wallace E. Stegner Fellow in Poetry.
