Every morning this gathering.
———This scraping of the what-is-

this? from the dew-cramped
——-grass. And every morning

the choice. How much.
———Whether or not to.

And always the same
——-decision made—and

of course for reasons
———most admirable. Most

selfless. For the love
——-of some good thing or

another: a daughter,
———a nation, the spoils of war

divided fairly. But every
———morning the same decision.

Then the worms.




Will Brewbaker studies theology at Duke Divinity School. His poetry has appeared in journals such as Narrative, TriQuarterly Review, and Washington Square Review.
