Not Again

By Dorothea Grossman

As if I needed
another reminder
of you
in winter,
when the lights dance
on the bridges
and a tune on the piano
draws blood.
You have invaded
my small country
like a bullet.

Allen Ginsberg called Dorothea Grossman's poetry "clear, odd, personal, funny or wild-weird, curious and lucid." The award-winning poet lives, works and writes in Los Angeles. Her work has appeared in numerous journals and collections, and she has published four books: Cuttings: Selected Poetry 1978-1988, Poems from Cave 17, Museum of Rain and The First Time I Ate Sushi.
