Today's poem is by Ryan Flaherty
Start at either end of a history.
In an empty hall with one crocus,
start the compost recovery project.
Start up the no-armory parade.
Make from a circumference a globe,
make from a river a river.
Start at either end of a sorrow
and walk towards its epicenter.
Restart the blown statuary project.
Restart the robin egg's blue broken
on the deck. Restart the yolk,
flecked red with blood, quivering
under the nest.
