You've really stepped out of "the picture frame" with this one--and into my favorites. Really well spoken, lyrical, imagery that connects almost in "silence" all the way through, some startling and some with a "sweet" "inevitbility". As always the common view is recognized as limited, and the possibility for more-- aknowledged, and edged forward. In the face of "the illogical nature of time" and "a silence further than ears" you put this poem into a place apart, watchwords over it all. Every time I read it I savor lines, wry, heightened in pure emotion, reaching, even funny, and intense.
