Just wanted to note that the motion through these lines (which end a poem by Joanne Kyger quoted by Ron Silliman today),

When he dropped us off in the city
He took just one very shapely branch
& left us on the sidewalk

with this huge mound
of drooping greenery and blossoms
and drove away into the night

, especially the weight and pause of and around the fourth here quoted, is wholly admirable.

This is nice. Silliman is so verbose on his blog -- and yet here he is, succinct.
