Richard Siken

The wind knocks the heads of the flowers together.
Steam rises from every cup at every table at once.
Things happen all the time, things happen every minute
that have nothing to do with us.

— Richard Siken, “A Primer For Small Weird Loves,” Crush. (Yale University Press April 11, 2005)
