Today's poem is by Maxine Chernoff

[without action]

on the Grecian urn

the lovers bereft

but also becalmed

I think therefore

I don't enact

my darkest thoughts

a political bouquet

of triolets

was recently sent

but never arrived

the article read

a plane had been lost

reason stilled

thought unwilled

we slept in our beds

all afternoon
