To the ghost of Howard Nemerov

Cover of Planet of the and dog....

There should be a tune for this—something Doric
Of Rude Scotts—though still a kind of plaint
Jist tyaavin awaa, just struggling along
A fine mist covering the page

I passed you at the Workshop (me looking
Like Rasputin) (you with a buzz cut)
Two damaged men in a dark corridor
Poetry, briefly, takes anyone
