Epilogue

You wonder sometimes what it ever was
that caught your eye, some grace of attitude,
smile or intensity of gaze. The buzz
travels the nerves, quick, tender. Platitude
grows exact and sweet. Of course this prompts our lust
the will to conquer, nakedness and bed;
what’s true as well, the comely engenders trust,
an open heart, the common day remade.

The slap of presence: summer evening, deer
among the pasture grasses, watchful, still,
a chickadee in snow, black-eyed and brave.
Always our breathing a mong what’s now, what’s here;
thus the impossible that might be, will.

Sudden and absolute stranger, this is love.

 

—David Helwig. Sudden and Absolute Stranger. Oberon Press.

This hot-off-the press volume of Helwig’s collected poems will be launched on May 2 at 7 pm at The Queue (next door to the Pilot House on Grafton Street in Charlottetown).

PEI poet laureate Deirdre Kessler selects a poem a month by an Island poet for readers of The Buzz.
