SUL PONTICELLO by Jack Gilbert

Year by year he works himself, replacing youth with stone. 

But the marble rings with love even more than the fine flesh.

–Jack Gilbert 

Not a Credo

The light, the incredible light of every day / is followed not by darkness nor even silence, / but, lo and behold, the greatest emptiness emptied.

–Judith Barrington, from “Not a Credo”
