Dennis Phillips, Navigation: Selected Poems, 1985–2010

 

Kinch

Cut the pear or I cut the pear.
She wouldn’t say it was spoiled but, like syntax,
the beginning was different from the end.

As at other times a scene
rendered from a dream
or a distant memory recurs:
The low, bleached coastal town,
the labyrinthine train tunnels,
a kind of herd but voices.

Is it syntax that’s stored as a sugar,
or with diffidence as protein’s residue?
Which synapse emboldens
under the shade of passing jet wings
then dives backward, away from the map they impose?

 

Born in Los Angeles in 1951, Dennis Phillips is the author of ten books of poetry and one novel, Hope (2007). Former director of the Beyond Baroque Literary Center in Venice, past book review editor for Sulfur magazine, and poetry editor of the L.A. Weekly, Phillips is a professor in the Department of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Art Center College of Design and teaches regularly in the Graduate Writing program at Otis College of Art and Design.
