Best Local Poet to Die in the Past 12 Months 

Donald Finkel, 1929-2008


Listen, shhh
alone among trees
I've come for a heart-to-heart
with the woods
I fall on my knees
for a tête à tête with a geode

behind his limestone brow I sense
the clean hard corners of his thought
facet to facet, glinting dimly
postulates of amethyst and quartz

it's small talk time
I'll parley with the loam
make peace with the Indian Pipe
I'll learn to speak weedish
—Donald Finkel

Miss you, man.
