Description: If in reading a poem, as Billy Collins believes, we enter the consciousness of another, it would follow that the higher the consciousness, the better the experience. And in the case of Collins, the experience can be a very exhilarating one indeed. His poems shuttle us back and forth between the realms of the clear and the mysterious, often carrying us from the everyday into imaginative territory we never knew existed.

One of his new poems, "No Time, " is a fine example:

In a rush this weekday morning,

tap the horn as I speed past the cemetery

where my parents are buried

side by side under a smooth slab of granite.

Then, all day long, I think of him rising up

to give me that look

of knowing disapproval

while my mother calmly tells him to lie back down.
