sunday morning


it's sunday morning
and i'm searching for poetry
in a seventh grade
science book...

and i become aware
that the process
of the
search
is poetry
in itself
while i am lost in
words
of saturation
and levee...
water cleaving to soil,
earth too full to bear more...

and the rest is runoff
flowing along my surface.

Ooh, I like this. "The search is poetry in itself." Very true. And I am very into searching for poetry outside myself lately.
