Regarding, What Are Years?

A Poem by Erin Sky

'What are Years?' is a poem by a lady named Marianne Moore that I really enjoy. This is a bit of a response.


Years are bundles

of time

that are stacked by barns

stick by stick

we loosen the aging, knotted twine


Until the house is built

the belly fed

The trees and flowers built

until we lie adventurous and dead
