Glenn McKee

LATE FRAGMENT

My glass regardless of its contents
is full of Now—so full of Now

I can drink my fill without fear
of Now going out of business.

When unable to bend an elbow,
I take my Now through a straw.

from Rattle #23, Summer 2005

Glenn McKee: “I suffer from a 60-year-old habit of tearing poetry off my life. Not many pages of my life remain, and those that do hang on like surgical tape plastered on a hairy body. Nevertheless, I intend to write myself out of life.”
