Excerpt from

San Sepolcro



In this blue light
    I can take you there,
snow having made me
    a world of bone
seen through to. This
    is my house,

my section of Etruscan
    wall, my neighbor's
lemontrees, and, just below
    the lower church,
the airplane factory.

Robert N. Casper on Graham, in Ploughshares:
Critics have described these poems as 'difficult'; in response, Graham asserts that they are imagistically clear but that the form of the poems - the throughway, if you will - invites the reader to perceive - or even 'read' - in a new way.
