April 10: Fragment on Dissembling by Lucie Brock-Broido

Today, a provocative miniature from Trouble In Mind, the most recent collection by Lucie Brock-Broido.

Curious in your dark
Frock-coat, do everything
That you have to,
             If it is time;
             Leave nothing
Still unsaid.
Once, to make of nothing
Something, was divine.
             To have made
             Of something
Nothing, was sublime.
