Nina Channing lives on Long Island with her dog, Tuck.

 

 

this just to say

 

i saw a picture of your arm that’s all

just an arm and on it a hand

and in it a drink

 

but something in the crumpled shape

the sleeve made

around the elbow

remembered other crumpled things —

brown coats at the door

papers at the bottom of a bag

a towel on the bathroom floor left

at the feet of the man i love.
