I have installed your vaults within me.
Though they echo now more than before
they remain; who will remove them?
Time, that dispossessed prince, who alone
can erase both sides of the coin?
But you have chained him with your words. See, there, in the corner—
he waits a content savage.

“The ark is the first impressive man-made creation, the world’s first ambitious piece of technology. In the world of Genesis … a world of slick-talking snakes, cherubs with flaming swords, and guys who live to be eight hundred years old—the ark gives us something pragmatic, something with worldly dimensions. In other words, some literary realism.”

Text

Epithalamium by Louise Gluck

There were others; their bodies
were a preparation. 
I have come to see it as that.

As a stream of cries.
So much pain in the world—the formless
grief of the body, whose language
is hunger—

And in the hall, the boxed roses:
what they mean

is chaos. Then begins
the terrible charity of marriage,
husband and wife
climbing the green hill in gold light
until there is no hill,
only a flat plain stopped by the sky.

Here is my hand, he said.
But that was long ago.
Here is my hand that will not harm you.
