  1. “I Stop Writing the Poem,” by Tess Gallagher from They Say This (Poetry East #47, 48, De Paul University).

    I Stop Writing the Poem

    to fold the clothes. No matter who lives

    or who dies, I’m still a woman.

    I’ll always have plenty to do.

    I bring the arms of his shirt

    together. Nothing can stop

    our tenderness. I’ll get back

    to the poem. I’ll get back to being

    a woman. But for now

    there’s a shirt, a giant shirt

    in my hands, and somewhere a small girl

    standing next to her mother

    watching to see how it’s done.
