(“believing belief ”)

I was not thinking of her I was trying not to think of her.
I left a cold place and traveled to the warm it was raining
the hard rain down that fell into a rata-tat-tat on the wings
as I deplaned. I love the rain, I said, but it was not true.
Rain’s gloomy and I was glad. Elle was still alive and I
believed belief could heal her. I had a dream in which
someone died and when I woke I thought, Someone has died.
I hardly knew death was so sudden. Before Elle saw the
doctor, she had something and then she had something else.
After she saw the doctor it was diagnosed as something
worse. Elle oh Elle, I said when word reached me. And,
Oh no. Who doesn’t say something that isn’t anything?

(“Elle in hospice”)

Saturday we spoke of stopping hydration.
Elle asked us to just shoot me or make me
. We were her agents of change,
we strangers from afar. Monday
the morphine drip. Or maybe Sunday.
The on-call hospice nurse had the worst
tobacco and whiskey voice and the voice
upset Elle who roused at last to say, No more
love. But the nurse in the middle of her
story continued so bent on telling the whole
she forgot the point of being there at all.
We heard her though we no longer listened,
having turned to Elle whose
breathing had begun to quicken.

Deep thanks to Wendy Barker, Martha Collins, and Alicia Ostriker for your generous words and abiding support; to the Helene M. Wurlitzer Foundation of New Mexico for a quiet space in which to begin this book before I knew it was one; to the English Department and the Creative Writing Program at Arizona State University for the leave time that enabled me to advance this project; to my CW colleagues for so generously covering for me-especially Norman Dubie, Sally Ball, and Alberto R os; to the Maxine and Jonathan Marshall Chair in Modern and Contemporary Poetry for the resources to undertake travel necessary to the writing of these poems; and to the MFA Program at Cornell University for the invitation to be Distinguished Visiting Writer in the Spring of 2014, during which time I had the peace of mind conducive to going deeply into and completing the project in draft. My thanks to everyone in English at Cornell for their warm welcome, in particular Alice Fulton, Lyrae Van Clief-Stefanon, Ishion Hutchinson, and Valzhyna Mort. To Martha Collins, Alan Michael Parker, Lois Roma-Deeley, and Jeannine Savard, all of whom beneficently read the whole manuscript and gave me judicious feedback: you gave me the gift of your expertise and friendship, and you gave me courage. To Kate Gale and Mark Cull of Red Hen Press: Ever-thanks for standing by me, and for the beautiful books you make. To the friends and family (especially my adored husband, Sylvain Gallais) who journeyed with me to walk labyrinths, although they wished many times to be doing something else, ever-love .
In memory of L. W., A. O., M. M., and L. E. H.,
