  10. Over and Over Stitch | Jorie Graham


    Late in the season the world digs in, the fat blossoms
    hold still for just a moment longer.
    Nothing looks satisfied,
    but there is no real reason to move on much further:
    this isn’t a bad place;
    why not pretend

    we wished for it?
    The bushes have learned to live with their haunches.
    The hydrangea is resigned
    to its pale and inconclusive utterances.
    Towards the end of the season
    it is not bad

    to have the body. To have experienced joy
    as the mere lifting of hunger
    is not to have known it
    less. The tobacco leaves
    don’t mind being removed
    to the long racks—all uses are astounding

    to the used.
    There are moments in our lives which, threaded, give us heaven—
    noon, for instance, or all the single victories
    of gravity, or the kudzu vine,
    most delicate of manias,
    which has pressed its luck

    this far this season.
    It shines a gloating green.
    Its edges darken with impatience, a kind of wind.
    Nothing again will ever be this easy, lives
    being snatched up like dropped stitches, the dry stalks of daylilies
    marking a stillness we can’t keep.
