On the Ninth Anniversary of the Death of Derrida
In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

The day begins in fog, mist clinging
to hilltops, birds erratic

in their song. Above the ocean,
air and its attendant wrongs.

Along the coasts of the world,
books have been left out overnight

on wooden tables and in the seats
of plastic chairs, their pages curling

at the corners, letters etched with salt.
On a dew-wet beach in Indonesia,

Rilke’s eszetts have lost their sibilance
and Trakl’s umlauts—damp, smeared,

illegible—no longer have the power
to round the vowels they rest upon.
