Today's poem is by Allan Peterson

As Far As I Know

As far as I know is not that far

I step outside to visit my mosquitoes

A boat winch strains to be a voice

There is no memory without remorse

The slightest passing thought

says poignant on the way

and poignant has a voice like that

a cry a winch lifting daylight and daylight

dropped from a great height
