Recovery, By A. R. AMMONS

June 16, 1991

All afternoon

the tree shadows, accelerating,

lengthened

till

sunset

shot them black into infinity:

next morning

darkness

returned from the other

infinity and the

shadows caught ground

and through the morning, slowing,

hardened into noon.

Their Sex Lives

One failure on

Top of another
