Composer's note: The initial inspiration for my Twelve Poems was Paul Muldoon’s
poem “The Briefcase,” in which he reflects, while waiting for a bus, on
the possibility of “the first inkling” of this poem (inside his
briefcase) being swept from his side on a city street in Manhattan by
the rushing water of a sudden cloudburst: “I knew I daren’t/set the
briefcase down/ to slap my pocket for an obol—/for fear it might slink
into a culvert and strike out along the East River/ for the sea. By
which I mean the ‘open’ sea.”
