Artist's Description

What a small feeling the phrase enormously sad

alludes to this morning—a child has turned

away, or, you sense defeat, the grief and defeat

of disappointed love, failed friendships, defeat

of work come to nothing. Grief and defeat

pervade the kitchen, the bedroom, the walk

downstairs to the laundry, pervade the basket

of unloved socks and charmless underwear,

and the arms holding the basket, and the feet

feeling blindly for the unreliable old steps.

Enormously sad, this unwanted quiet’s suffused

with it, not the quietude you’ve surely yearned for,

not a solitude elected, the cell with favorite books,

savory meals left at the door, occasional nocturnal

visits (but that would compromise the solitude,
wouldn’t it?).
