Cheribun: 47 words
By Keith Evetts

Jacob’s Ladder


Ants across the page, a poet’s words are tiny, bear a hundred times their weight, perhaps, but they are earthbound. Infinity hangs on the wall in MoMA.

   starry night 

   a sense of vertigo 
   whirls in me 

   the moment 
   when I know 
   not to look down
