About This Title

"What I love about John Logan's poems is what we loved in him as a man: their warmth and directness, their affection for the world and its lives and the way they happen. The poems seem transparent, a current in which orescence and change, joy and loss, our involvement with them, are all but palpable."- W.S. Merwin


The Owl

     after János Hegedüs
     and for Jill Bullitt

The moon is in sight
On a poplar rotting in the night
Two lamps of eyes catch fire
Two clawed feet clutch at their desire
The profound owl
Ferocious and gray
Grotesquely feeds
For he is hungry as can be
He is hungry as can be.
