Not / by Sophie Cabot Black

Cabot-Black

that you are unloved

but that you love

and must decide which

 

to remember; tracks left

in the field, a language

of going away or coming back–

 

and to look up

from the single mind,

to let untangle

 

the far-off snow

from sky

until no longer

 

held as proof

is also where birds

find agreement

 

strung along branches

each with their own song

for the other,

 

every note used

to sing anyway–

how to hold the already

 

as the not yet

About This Poem

 

“This was written for a friend who kept asking me if anyone would ever love her. Always that question, and what is there to say except to endure enough to see what happens. Maybe even to be brave enough to start first, to love without expectation, even hope.”
–Sophie Cabot Black
