Solitary Plover – Summer 2020

Adoration of the Ear

                                    – ekphrasis on an African linguist’s staff

crooked staff

like a great tree

ground-sprung

 

swept air clear for

feeling’s drum

 

burnished gold leaf,

with thumb roll of

an elephant’s dung

into ear shape

 

with a trunk trumpets

vowels of savannah
