But listen to me: I will tell you
how to love a bedspread;
a car seat; a sun dress
that you cleaned two months ago.

and should they find her
in the breast of a riverbank
or a cabinet,

I will tell you
facts about scavenger birds;
kettles, wakes and how to chair a committee
with a body on your desk,

as scavenger birds do.
A poem about tragedy poetry. I read once that if you weren't there, you shouldn't talk about it.

OP said it was about tragic poetry and then went on to say " if you weren't there, you shouldn't talk about it."
I think it's a narration directed to people who write about tragedies that never affected them in any way other than making them feel a little bad for someone else.
