FROM “HIDE AND SEEK”

THREE NEW POEMS

by Dan Chiasson

Hide and Seek

Once, north of here, a child played
hide-and-seek. His part was to hide,
ergo he played his role and hid.

The seeker, embarrassed by his role,
thinking it beneath his dignity,
developed instead a personality disorder.

We hope you enjoy this excerpt.

Dan Chiasson teaches at Wellesley College. The poems in this issue are from his third book of poems, Where’s the Moon, There’s the Moon, to be published next month by Knopf.
