Verum and Factum, after Giambattista Vico

First appeared in  The Worcester Review (Volume 34, 2014)

What to be made

of sparrows stuck

 

in the throat? What

to be made of the girl

 

gasping in the shed,

of dead trees holding up

 

sheaves of white sky,

of the hillside green

 

clean of human breath?
