In Thirteen ParksCraig Morgan Teicher
1 Good morning Tree! And how shall I proceed such that a stream comes careening through the sky across my view here at the window and stops dead in the air suspended like a magic carpet? Is this the question I meant to ask? No, not at all— I wanted to write something interesting, and this came to mind. 2 I'm not sure if these poems are working, which, perhaps is an indicator that something new is taking hold 3 or perhaps it means that these poems aren't working. 4 This poem is addressed to the ghost of a horse. 5 This poem believes in unicorns and other things girls believe. 6 No. It believes in baseball. 7 This poem is in dialogue with its author though it records only its half of the conversation. 8 It is Saturday. Bring out my friends. 9 Part nine is the least important. 10 Part four is the most important. 11 Since its composition, part ten has surpassed part four in importance. 12 Think of this as part thirteen. 13 No horse will ever address the ghost of a poem though the ghost of Walt Whitman is anyone's ghost, and anyone's poem is his poem. 14 Think of this as part thirteen. 15 Think of this as part thirteen.
