From "An Explanation of America" LAIR"Robert Pinsky"

Inexhaustible, delicate, as ifWithout source or medium, daylightUndoes the mind; the infinite,

Empty actual is too bright, Scattering to where the roadWhispers, through a mile of woods ?

Later, how quiet the house is: Dusk-like and refined, The sweet Phoebe-note

Piercing from the trees;The calm globe of the morning, Things to read or to write

Ranged on a table; the brainA dark, stubborn current that breathesBlood, a deaf wadding,

The hands feeding it paperAnd sensations of wood or metalOn its own terms. Trying to read

I persist a while, finish the recognitionBy my breath of a dead giant's breath--Stayed by the space of a rhythm,

Witnessing the blue gulf of the air.
