Pamlico Sound (excerpt)
By Jessica McFarland Walton (b. 1976)

Surely I am not the first to tell you
that the present is not unassailable.
The invasion of studied patterns is inevitable.

The cleansing breaths,
the guerilla meditation,
welcome sensory immediacy

but the vacuum
also greets the spectres of history.
