until a week ago denmark had two living poets who had a deep impact on my writing. now one is gone leaving danish poetry a much more barren place than it was. others have written & spoken more wisely on inger christensen than i could, hence this little poem

(first letters for inger)
i.m. inger christensen 1935-2009

alphabets are. aphrodisiac alphabets absorb

being born. believing bees
become bumblebees. breathing before

circambulating calls. cells circumvent.
christensen christened circular ceasefires.
cells called christensen collected

dear decapitation. defenestration. do
dance. define dying. divining

ever ears. even egrets
