Lentil by Rodger Kamenetz
“For mourning is a sphere
Making a circuit in the world”
So do not be surprised when it appears
next door or even nearer.
And what shall we eat for mourning
but a lentil round as a mouth
that is closed
What shall we say to them on the morning of a day
when no words are good, only
the touch of a hand, an embrace?
See them there: one silent, one shuddering
making one body of two, a perfect round.
