Nothing Is Known But . . .
by David M. Matthews

    nothing is known but -- that
    nothing is known --
    and death --
    we wake to bright noon
    a blue hammer
    or a green saxophone
    washes up from the sea
    the color of laughter --
    the wind might touch
    us like words -- poetry --
    the sky above -- brilliant
    with time --
