Poem



Orpheus, look back into
The crawling darkness at the DVD
Player I trail on its power cable
And the cable parts, gnawed by rats, and it
Falls behind into the dark,
It's a DVD player, it's been there
For at least a year, in the open shed
Rain, heat, bugs, rats have had their way with it
And now it has been taken back from the
Underworld. Redemption has been made
And I, as the place I
Will not go, the place I stored all the stuff
From before, from that which is Underworld
