Set 7: House untraveled by

1.
perfection is a house untraveled by

2.
these things that are true have not to do
with abundance

3.
he who withers does so at his own convenience

4.
books build bridges—
come to end then boot you off them

5.
poems are feathers teasing reach

6.
grace exists the moment two see eye to eye

7.
literature is mind adventure

8.
sorrow and anguish are the miles a coyote covers
before finding water

9.
good collaborates with another man—
evil separates them

10.
when I learn commitment, I will be free

11.
nothing do I recount correctly—
only do I plead well

12.
rejection is the blow of a sculptor—
be not halted, become the artwork

13.
ever doing the wrong thing, at the right time

14.
I’ve too much patience for sorrow
too little for joy

15.
oh beauty! don’t pass over me—
there’s blood on my door-post

16.
to pursue one for every two
perceive the half moon full

17.
better than why, where
better than where—here

18.
the trees don’t analyze, they emit—
nothing to add? ah, dimwit!

19.
searching for frequency—it’s the mouth that radios

20.
am I free am I free am I free—
three times for benediction

21.
offend the poet by asking him what he does
for a living

22.
public works have no office to go to
