Tuesday poem #75 : Norma Cole : Extended Play

“a day’s work or a basket of wheat”
Adam Frank, About Time

A promise, if only I knew. Money is not a balloon. I am not sure how to carry it. Let’s have a big hand. A big band. It looks like three hours. Measure drama department. Once you say it, guitar, bass & drums. Pieces of resistance as in rose madder. Someone calls out, “Lefty! Lefty!” The little triangle at the top, and keep it at the table.

Norma Cole’s most recent book of poetry is Win These Posters and Other Unrelated Prizes Inside. TO BE AT MUSIC: Essays & Talks made its appearance in 2010 from Omnidawn Press. Her translations from the French include Crosscut Universe: Writing on Writing from France, and Jean Daive’s A Woman with Several Lives. Actualities, Cole’s collaboration with painter Marina Adams, is forthcoming from Litmus Press. Her paintings & drawings will be shown at the 2nd Floor Projects in Fall 2014.
