O Taste and See

O Taste and See

The world is
not with us enough O taste and see

the subway Bible poster said, meaning The Lord, meaning if anything all that lives
to the imagination’s tongue,

grief, mercy, language, tangerine, weather, to
breathe them, bite,
savor, chew, swallow, transform

into our flesh our
deaths, crossing the street, plum, quince, living in the orchard and being

hungry, and plucking the fruit.
