In case of fire

And whereas I had said; letters and photos

And seen myself muscling through the flames,

You would go back especially for your houseplants –

Those dreamy weeping figs, this stocky yucca –

What’s worth remembering remembered, leaving

Both hands free for carrying out the future.


Richard Meier (1970-), Oxford Poets, Manchester, Carcanet Press, 2002, p.70.
