Bifocals. Is a poem best edited by one wearing bifocals?

How else does a poem guarantee close-up and distance clear-cut seeing? Details and the big picture.

Can the same be said of the cook? An onion close up is not the same as one slow-roasted. To which add cut Compari tomatoes. Perhaps a trace of cumin.

  1. Close and not so

    that being the parallel embrace
    of things that matter and also do not
    the laying down of grass mats
    before sleep
    the taking up of them
    upon waking
    and all the sounds of the night
    profuse and distantly
