Refine Your Search
An anaesthesiologist prays Psalm 69
before a routine gallbladder operation.
Dr Morgan abandons her lunch-date,
loses her religion
in the jargon of quarks and parsecs.
High-powered telescopes record kerfuffles
between creatures beyond our solar system.
I sip black coffee as Pyongyang petrifies
into winter, as anorexic models
flaunt borrowed finery on a Paris catwalk.
Shutterbugs capture partridges
as they waddle across Concord Avenue.
Ghosts of Dirksen, Saltonstall, Javits
shake their heads as a president tweets.
