Exceptional, by Nick Urban

After "Exceptionally" by Jonathon Wonham

the word falls, light
as a feather, tumbling
like a river stone

the likelihood of this
moment is almost nothing
but your hand won't
let me doubt

celebrate the minor rituals; try,
when life lives in symbol but wants

to move in this world
is to dream on every

articulated body
makes a home among the scenes
a shoulder holds more verses
than a jot could ever glean

somewhere a shot
somewhere a flap of wings

exceptional and miraculous:
being together, under
the snow
