The Past
By Barbara Guest

The form of the poem subsided, it enters another poem.

A witness was found for the markings inscribed upside-down.

It might have been a celebration, so strong the presence

of the poem. The sky sinks slowly inside the past.

Barbara Guest died on February 15, 2006. A truly great poet who knew how to use space to call attention to language.
