Such and Such a Time at Such and Such a Palace

By Heather Christle at Academy of American Poets

The lack of a single-word infinitive
in our language is what is killing me
this morning
                           A single word for all
infinitives is what God is doing tonight
This is just one of many acts
to have passed through the garden
Previously on this show they put
a peacock back together wrong
after its demise
there was in the syntax
Poor bird could feel it in his bones
