Poem: Death By Wind

Death By Wind
–Ger­ald Stern
From Save the Last Dance

As for those who face their death by wind
and call it by the weird name of forgiveness
they alone have the right to mar­ry birds,
and those who stopped them­selves from falling down
by hold­ing the wall up or the sink in place
they can go with­out much shame for they
have lived enough and they can go click, click
if they want to, they can go tok, tok
and they can mar­ry any­thing, even hummingbirds.
