if a poet
is anybody . . .
waves on a winter shore

A Longhouse Birdhouse: CROSSING AMERICA ~

Crossing America

I.

We hitchhiked America. I
still think of her.

I walk the old streets thinking I
see her, but never.

New buildings have gone up.
The bartenders who poured roses
into our glasses are gone.
We are erased.

II.

Minook, Illinois,
one street out of nowhere through cornstalks.
Winter clutched the cornfields into Chicago.
Cold, we couldn’t get in out of the cold.

But a lonely filling station owner risked
letting his death in out of the night.
I lay on his gas station floor and let her
use me for a bed.

I will never forget the cold into
my kidneys or lying awake bearing the
pain while she slept like a two month
old child on the hill of its mother’s tit.

It was on the stone floor
that I knew I loved her.

spring duet

snowmelt
earth exhales
green fingers

earth inhales
blooming daffodil
slips down a mole hole

 

acorn grows
choking and spitting dirt
topples the stone fence

hurt land

natural laws
limit

self-regulate, know
being becomes

dendrites stretch forth
explore through feeling
for

interre-
late, sustain

nothing
does not exist
