Knee-deep as Leaves

                   —on an email from H.

in a wired java shop today
among caffeinators I
received a poem from a friend
I’ve know since
before I understood friendship
but now I do
and appreciate his calling me
into the world of this poem
which is not his, but his
anyway in that he saw the truth in it
and thought I might too
with thanks it joins all other truths
blown against my door now piled
knee deep as leaves in fall
.
