Sidewalk in Rome

This poem first appeared in the Kenyon Review

At Three or Four

As if hearing thunder, far off
I wake up at three or four,
the dark a musty breathed up closeness
and turn my pillow over.

It's like a voice or voices,
powerful, carrying convincing waves.
Often there's a tomb.
I feel my heart pounding

as if I were living a consumed dream,
the warm
comforter no longer such. Something.
Don't sleep one minute more.
