A Second Look at Rubin’s Figure



Entre chiens et loups,

between the dogs and the wolves.


When shepherds take their lambing-sticks

and pen the clouds in.


That time we shed our outdoor sight

and become, like dogs, all nose.


That autumn of every day

when hunters gathered in for the heat.


Entre chiens et loups

when the night sparks up


and the sky blushes

at cloven excesses underfoot.

This is a joint collection with Tricia Torrington, where the two poets take the same subjects and write their poems on facing pages.
