Brackish Well
By John Crawford
From “Night”

IF I were less than the sum of what I am
I wonder—
My eyes seek yours
Coaxing the flame—
If I were blind?        5
If I were dumb
And had no song?
Say you would love me
Blind and dumb—
Nothing to hold you,        10
Nothing to bind you to me.
Say you would love
My spirit …
I will say to you:
Go and love some puff of wind        15
From a graveyard.
