    Description:

    From Erosion:
    SAN SEPOLCRO

    Jorie Graham

    . . . . How clean
    the mind is,
    holy grave. It is this girl
    by Piero
    della Francesca, unbuttoning
    her blue dress,
    her mantle of weather,
    to go into
    labor. Come, we can go in.
    It is before
    the birth of god. No-one
    has risen yet
    to the museums, to the assembly
    line bodies
    and wings to the open air
    market. This is
    what the living do: go in.
    It's a long way.
    And the dress keeps opening
    from eternity
    to privacy, quickening.
    Inside, at the heart,
    is tragedy, the present moment
    forever stillborn,
    but going in, each breath
    is a button
    coming undone, something terribly
    nimble-fingered
    finding all of the stops.

    Jorie Graham grew up in Italy and now lives in northern California.She has received grants from the Ingram-Merrill Foundation, the Bunting Institute, and the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation.Her first book, Hybrids of Plants and of Ghosts (Princeton, 1980), won the Great Lakes Colleges Association Award as the best first book of poems published in 1980.
