Revision

by Paul Hostovsky

There used to be
a live chicken
in this poem,

there was a glacier
and a sailboat,
the Pacific Ocean

sloshing between stanzas,
and me like Adam
saying, Here am I,

to God who was also
near.

    There is an amazing amount of presence in this poem about absence. That’s God for you!
