This is what is will be.
This fruit, turning inward into itself,
This is what is
it’s neither break nor down (6)
(1) 'and in turn drew water'
Hi. Here is another note. Footnoted phrases in this poem are lifted from the prose works of Frederick Law Olmsted, the landscape architect of Central Park, Boston's Emerald Necklace park system, and many many other recreational landscapes across the United States. My current manuscript-in-progress makes use of Olmsted's language in footnotes and in other ways. I started writing footnoted poems after reading Nicholson Baker's The Mezzanine. This is a good book. I find it most pleasing that everyone has their own method of reading a footnoted text (I read footnotes first, but I like it very much that you might not do this). 
 I mention footnotes six times in this note.
