From 'Fontanelles' - by Anne Michaels


To facts as unprovable as one's own death.

The distance a child travels,
tens of thousands of years,
one cell at a time.

The body is a memory palace.

As if,
just once, impossibly,
we'll catch the visible reflection
of what's invisible.

After thirty weeks,
quantum whispering: thought.

All love is time travel.

Before I knew a person can be a prayer.

From "Lake of Two Rivers"

The heart keeps body and spirit in suspension,
until density pulls them apart.

Like any sound, it goes on forever.

From "The Day of Jack Chambers"

You explained visual time,
how there's no weight without shadow.

How everything suspended stays temporal.
