A Shiver of Memory

Documenting a hole of personality.

Sam Hamill
The Infinite Moment: Poems from Ancient Greek

No charm,
all looks:

she pleases
but cannot hold —

she floats like bait
without the hook.

“Police Poems: 3” appearing in Writing 9 (Spring 1984)

everything except the loud parts, everything
except the silences

From full to nothing.

And so for day 1411
