Poets Walk: "a bird's heart"
Location on Poets Walk Map: 19
what we can't know by James LaVilla-Havelin
the number of the dead
the stretch of an hour
a bird’s heart
how our embrace feels to the embraced
the moment of a flower’s opening
outermost ripples of friendship and love
what our hands do while we sleep
a lie’s uncurling
the depth of loss
an insect’s view
morning brushing against treetops
how we are remembered
