~pea soup

late september settles, salt-white

ghostly canopies, born of sky
blur in the periphery like muffled lake notes
folding underwater;  the air, too thin

the listening rain knows

lah  7.7.15


~inflection point





 cloudstains clutter

     the passing moment


and crows have misread

     a blue-eyed sky



handbreadths slay

the august rose


obscure voices penetrate

the symmetry 

     in cornstalks

     and gathered scars



scatter the seed from

an ashen womb


     renew the tree


its peculiar burst of red leaves



like a ritual as old as

     a river


     missing salt

softens the backbone
