Two Poems
by Vince O'Connor

 

 

Contemplation

 

a Monarch
settles on a spider
milkweed
withdrawing sap
with suction-tube tongue

 

for two of
the minutes
of our lives
that remain
we sit

 

content

 

to silently
watch

 

 

a line, (a short blue one)

 

It Is What It Is

 

poetry is not
words on a page or
sounds in the ear
but souls talking
to other souls

 

 

 

a line, (a blue one)
