Simon Pettet

Poem (‘Fortunate proximity of lives...’)

Fortunate proximity of lives
Lived in quiet adoration
At rest, jump up on my pillow here, quick,
This spot is your spot, dear, this
Book that I wasn't really reading,
Unforgettable, rare and mysterious (as purring is)
So, this is the lesson that you came to teach.

You can read Rudy Burckhardt in conversation with Simon Pettet
