A Large Sadness

Elizabeth Arnold

swelling, welling
in me I see

one, want that

then another with the
passing draw

to a one more like

the first pull
pulling me toward that,


off it in the bright air,
sparkling leaves

—I see a body in it,

an eclipse!
And everything then


drained necessarily
of our light.
