Transcript What Gertrude Stein Felt When She Walked Through A Doorway It was always everything awake alive whether she liked it or not it was not nothing It was partially a way of walking Two feet and by that I mean two I mean not sliding Each one touching earth in different little spots and feeling every bit of it That is what Today is Saturday Light comes through my window in strips It is not looking for anything It is coming through touching plants scars on the old wood floor in a new light way I have everything to say I could begin anywhere Waxing Cars In Paris, Texas is one of the options. Or you can walk around town & let people stare at you. Read William Saroyan on a creaky swing. Listen to the local pharmacist sing "To Dream the Impossible Dream" at the outdoor band concert. Scrape the plates into a plastic bucket. Chase a cat who won't come. Smell the cotton oil you don't smell too often in the suburbs of Dallas. Imagine who lives anywhere. Gobble cobbler. Cruise up backstreets waving at old men on front porches who rock & smoke & haven't read a book in twelve years. Watch the paint peel. Feel like singing. Or you can drive over to the Paris Junior College Library where they have a stack of POETR Y magazines ("PLEASE KEEP THESE MAGAZINES IN ORDER") & find an assortment of perfectly ordered images sophisticated enough to be called poetry though they don't have anything to do with Paris, Texas, the way people talk, or the way you feel. —Naomi Shihab The World In Traslation it was a long climb out of the soil she counted off whole continents as she lifted each foot imagined her dark years falling away like husks soon she could feel objects come to life in her hand the peel of banana, a lightly waxed pepper she accepted these into her home, placed them in bowls where they could be watched there was nothing obscure about melons nothing involved about yams if she were to have anything to do with the world these would be her translators through these she would learn secrets of dying how to do it gracefully as the peach, softening in silence or the mango, finely tuned to its own skin —Naomi Shihab I Could Not Curse The Hook Naomi Shihab —Naomi Shihab / cursed the lawnmower that sliced the rock that shot from the blade & gashed my leg I cursed all the way to the emergency room my wound throbbing, an old pump I cursed the woman who fumbled paperclips while I bled on her floor she filled out my form I cursed the form I cursed the slowness the room I lay in while nobody came the doctor arrived while I was cursing the ceiling he had one hand the other was a hook he pulled on gloves he threaded a needle the hook sewed a neat seam across my leg I left that room without a voice —Naomi Shihab Lou Cinda Holt Page 14 February 1978 HOUSTON BREAKTHROUGH
