Spring pleases and doesn't
leaves pile and drift...we
need a snow
sprinkles...our clothes...damp
laurel in bloom...someone's
snapdragons...and Rosa's collage
made with my papers...a poem
of Catholic and Japanese scripts
Llosa's text...From the land
of sky blue water...HAMM'S BEER
cool...clear...dreaming of dementia

Marcia Roberts: Revealed and Not Revealed, from When People Stop Singing (in progress)

I bow down before the compressed practical quiet unimposing oldtime American tragic life wisdom, lyric heartfulness, clear observation, sharp wit, impeccable craft-care, and total real-dealness of the poetry of Marcia Roberts.

Marcia is a daughter of the American prairie. Yes, she lives now in San Antonio.
