Peter Riley's Greek Passages (Shearsman, 2009), first selection

The prose poems in Peter Riley's Greek Passages are untitled. 

There was no journey. The moment we opened our eyes we were there: / the colours across the bay / the red on the blue / Trinakrian Sea, its / turning islands, and all thought of betterment in the world / Bringing trouble. That lives here like a stone. / Bringing upright posture, anxiety, and longed-for repose. That live here like the flowers of the mountain.
