How Do We Know What To Do?


the National Arts Club

last night

Leslie made

a memorial for

her larger than life

poet husband Alastair Reid.

How do we who are not

part of a Do This Now

tradition know what

to do when Something Happens,

life for instance,

or death, or unspeakable


how do we

who try to feel

what we can

who try to understand

how do we

ever  know?
