About This Title

"For twenty years I have enjoyed the high intelligence and marvelous, civilized wit of Gerald Costanzo's poems.  These new poems are his best yet, sharper and more highly skilled, the products of a poet who has devoted his life to the thing he loves." —Paul Zimmer


Snake

Because he lived
in one of those regions
where snake is the plural

of snake, when they told him
there were snake in his swamp
he understood.  He did them in

with his shotgun.  His daughter,
Magill, sometimes sobbed while
poling them out.  The tears

in her eyes and the look in his:
a whole morning's religion—
and the corpse of snake

left be in the heat
not snake at all,
but several serpent.
