THIS HOUSE by Tom Montag

Stillness
like smooth water,
like an empty field.

Silence
is the starting point,
the place where motion

becomes the singing
in your small bowl.

POET’S COSMOLOGY by Tom Montag

Let this be
your measure:

the speed at
which we fly

towards darkness.
Your money

means nothing.
