Mark Doty
“Concerning Some Recent Criticism of His Work

—Glaze and shimmer,
luster and gleam;

can’t he think of anything
but all that sheen?

—No such thing,
the queen said,
as too many sequins.”
Mark Doty, Sweet Machine

Mark Doty
“(I know, lacquer
and tumble and glow,

burnished and fired

and hazed) it’s because
what else Lord

to wear? Every sequin’s
an act of praise.”
Mark Doty, Sweet Machine

Harryette Mullen
“Walking the path, I stop to pick up
bleached bark from a tree, curled into
a scroll of ancient wisdom I am unable to read.

Even in my dreams I’m hiking
these mountain trails expecting to find a rock
that nature has shaped to remind me of a heart.”
Harryette Mullen, Urban Tumbleweed: Notes from a Tanka Diary

Naomi Shihab Nye
“But I know we need to keep warm here on earth
And when your shawl is as thin as mine is, you tell stories.”
Naomi Shihab Nye, Red Suitcase

“The days are nouns: touch them
The hands are churches that worship the world”
Naomi Shihab Nye, Words Under the Words: Selected Poems
