Rae Armantrout Poetry

There are worldwide, catastrophic storms
When earth’s network
Of weather-control satellites
Is sabotaged by unknown enemies.

Rae Armantrout Poetry

This eucalyptus,
with its elliptical leaves

dangling, light and dry
as an abandoned chrysalis,

with its modest bunches
of pale pink flowers

and languid pose,
is my unattainable ideal.

Rae Armantrout
Poetry

Take this cup away from me
with its hints

of ammonia and dill,
oak or corrosion.

Who knows, really?

Rae Armantrout
Poetry

I want to get
to the managed care

evening,
where the future appears

to stream directly
into the past . . .
