NOTES FROM A JOURNAL

2-6-13:

On a crowded 1 train up to 168th Street after work. I have my iPod on but notice an elderly woman nearby motioning to me and saying something. I take off my earphones. “Excuse me?”

“Would you like my seat?”

I demur, and ask why she offered.

“Because you look so tired.”

How sad is that?

“I hope I get a good night’s sleep and then have a rush of thoughts, as I did this morning,” says O. “It is very delightful when that happens—all of them rushing to the surface, as if they have been waiting for me to become conscious of them…”

I help him get ready for bed—“de-sock” him, fill his water bottle, bring him his sleeping tablets, make sure he has something to read.

I: “What else can I do for you?”

O: “Exist.”

Thank You, Snow

Thank you, Snow, says O

Echoing Auden thanking Fog

For keeping us in

The low rumble of a plow on Eighth

A man with a camera fixed on the sky

Trying to capture a blizzard

Streetlamps tripled in the double-pane windows

The silent comedy of delivery boys on bikes

Even still
