Windows, Not Our Own

after Diane Di Prima

Robin Lane

Windows

facing an alley

facing the street

facing another window

backyard basketball court

garden driveway fountain playpen

Windows

facing other windows

Hello, windows and

Goodbye, windows

blind windows, black and boarded

facing highways

facing farms.

 

 

From my window: trees,

birds’ nests, a porch light.

Another: ditch, garbage, weeds.

I’ve seen my life through

windows:

blankets in grass,

love in grass,

dogs horses cows goats

prisons bridges skyscrapers,

building a world of glass.
