Abstract:

One poem is written by a ship at sea, another is a meditation on what it is to be a road, in a third the author counsels avoiding publicity in death: "To avoid the cliches / Of the obituary writers, / Die in obscurity. / A fine bed in a light-filled room / Someone who adores you is at your side / And vowed to silence."
