Just wanted to post something...

So here is another Julia Older poem, this one is from her collection Higher Latitudes


CONTRADANCE FIDDLER

His gaunt and stricken
body moves,
a shadow
of the silent bow.

The permutation of pain
is poetry.


His Adam’s apple
strokes the throat
like fingertips
on fiddle strings.

The permutation of poetry
is love.


His sandaled feet
stomp out the wound
and then, one night
the tune, the jig.
