Box Poem: Six Sides of Joseph Cornell
by Amie Keddy


The nautilus goes ‘round. I am not inside
the violet’s reclining head.


A tied blue bed. This may be how Poe slept.
Taut ropes, tension below. In a telltale heart,
the floorboards squeak.


Lady slipper pink, white birch twig.
Music box ballerina, spins, spins, spins.


A guard passes between galleries.


Dovecote: a vertical eclipse, black and white rows—25 one-inch holes.


From which of these did he depart?


Published in Cider Press Review, Volume 16, Issue 2.
