Terri Witek

  • Your worst feature is always your character, / which will only be fashionable when you're gone. / It's been peering between balustrades for years now — / it might just as well get dressed, come down.

  • In dreams we travel incognito / through border towns that seem familiar. / Did we live here? We don't know.

  • I woke into a sheet of gold unspooled / and still unspent, a wealth you know.

  • When asked to identify colors, don't incriminate yourself.

Terri Witek, U.S. poet

(1952)
