From "Survival"

by Tom Raworth.

[...]erpreted as implying
consciousness that the world
in all its normal solidity
lived through in time
survives death
to specify its location

behind a studio table
extremely limited portraits
sustaining it inhabit
acres of weed
waiting for something to happen
sunshine rarely glimpsed
partly because of fashion
eddying outward on its own side
in quotation marks
