1. the tale the shepherds tell the sheep

    that some will rise
    above shorn clouds of fleece
    and some will feel their bodies break
    but most will pass through this
    into sweet clover
    where all     all will be sheltered safe
    until the holy shearing
    don’t think about the days to come
    sweet meat
    think of my arms
    trust me

    Chris Faatz, bookseller at Powell’s City of Books, reveals his favorite poetry books from the past year and a half, including this one by the late Lucille Clifton.
