Poem by Marie Buck (from the first volume)

Gravitate to Me

I, babe in arms, drink no men or women alike.

Cut short the confession. I observe Katie and Tom.

I grin: I’ve been ensconced.

I would tell them the story about a beautiful baby girl.

Before asking her to marry him, he transformed himself into an angel.

My life is brilliant, no holds barred.

And that’s what I, Suri, am: the joy.

Enjoy the lady once more. Soon

you will be on top of the world.

We laugh. From the looks of things, you’re already there.

The house has the feeling of a sprawling lodge or chalet.

It is perfect.

There are stories upon stories exchanged.

A breathtaking sunset descends on the southwest ridges.

This is my family, and I care so much about them.

I see not how you can quit this place without being known.

Great Announcement

The Physical Poets Home Library is an anthology of writing by small groups of friends across North America, self-editing each volume. Since autonomous editorial oversight is left in the hands of each volume's participant editors, no form or genre will be sanctioned. We at lil' Norton only ask that work chosen for each volume should be easily and cheaply reproducible. Contact information regarding purchases and editorships will be available soon.

Also, available soon, my editorial contribution:

Volume I: "The Neo-liberal American Poetry"
featuring the work of:
Marie Buck
Brad Flis
Lawrence Giffin
Steven Zultanski
