In “White Heron Rises Over Blackwater,”

Mary Oliver wonders
what it is
        that I will accomplish
          today

and on that today for me in July
I write a letter to the editor
of America magazine re an issue
I feel strongly about.

I read Philip Booth and hope
and pray he is with me today
in all my work––

I wash the sheets. The clean
bed awaits the quiet of night.
Holy. Holy. Holy.
