Our corn gets a splash of Michel Deguy compost tea

    O great apposition of the world

                                                  a rose field near a wheat field and two red
children in the field bordering on the rose field and a corn field near the
wheat field and two old willows where they join; the song of two rose
children in the wheat field near the rose field and two old willows
keeping watch over the roses the wheat the red children and the corn

     The blue blots like a spot
     The white ink of clouds
     Children are also my
     Country path

Michel Deguy, 1930–. Translation from the French by Clayton Eshleman.
