Maxine Chernoff



Society and Solitude

"All conversation is a magnetic experiment."


A misnomer

     carved

memory

   a solitary river

hedge

        oaks

     evergreens

"keep a secret

            all year round"

   fine traits

not

 large enough

          for tragedy

disguised by

            cold blood

a chemical affinity

            ropes

cannot hold


(from The Portable Emerson)
