    Soon, the last stone
    was found in place

    and maybe something was said,
    there in the breath between wall
    and walled-in

    sorry, or I am so
    tired, or simply amen

    ah, God
    amen.

      I'd say I've read this one at least 50 times on 10 different days. I think that all but the first few words are perfect.

    I find the SOON, and the the last stone WAS found

    was found.

    it's fascinating, like you are stepping into a time warp where the projected future and the past are concurrently inhabiting what is not possible.

    At some other point I may actually talk about the rest of the poem but, I really like how that particular phrasing gives me the sense of someone who might spend time around archeological digs, speaking to themselves, of themselves- in that way it's thoroughly haunting, like they might be describing their own death, the thought pointing to a lack of life and therefore, it makes everything else most relevant. I like the thought that that phrasing and or - glitch was like a secret window to the poem and to me, that 'Soon,' represents the last stone.

    Honestly, I don't think I have come across anything that strikes me with such utter sadness. She has sealed herself in.

      That's very nice. Final word "God" but always the amen. Exclamation, declaration, adoration, resignation all found in one three letter word.

      this reminds me of a cairn for some reason. placing that last rock. that last good-bye. that last amen. that god-awful-i'm-so-tired last hurrah.

    i think i've always been drawn to them. maybe because of the physicality of it all. the purposeful movement of stacking stones just so.

    i love the second stanza here. the breath between wall and walled-in just up and down lingers for me.

    anyhoo,

    just some thoughts.

      when the final words of the lecture are said, we stir...where have we been? what has been said?

    perhaps it was worthwhile...but now it is in the wall of my brain, or walled-in where i can't get to it, can't remember it.

    i like the last two stanzas..."sorry," or "amen"; i'm not sure what to say, i haven't been paying attention--

    and this is so true in relationships..one will tune out the other as if listening to a lecture..

    "sorry, what were you saying?"
    at times it isn't that we didn't hear, it is that we didn't like what we were hearing and played the old "selective hearing" card.

    from the bottom of the deck.

    simply said, shortly said...well said.

    again...the good in brevity, leaves us much space between the wall, to see what we see, and hear what we hear.
