The Origin of Change

Two things of opposite natures seem to depend
On one another, as a man depends
On a woman, day on night, the imagined
On the real. This is the origin of change.
Winter and spring, cold copulars, embrace
And forth the particulars of rapture come.

Wallace Stevens

You can’t tell that I love the word play – or maybe you can – But I know, too,
That the blackbird is involved
In what I know.
