Moment to Moment

Rae Armantrout

          for Wallace Stevens


poppy-speckled glass
vase alone

on a shelf,
neck twisted
to one side

like nothing else
in this guest room,

you organize


that sleek leaf,

a yacht
on a stalk,

its long sharp prow
and curved gunwale

the metaphorical
sum of itself
