Prairie Schooners

Saint Paul, 15 January 2004
 

Sunflowers behold your antecedents
Like congregations of witnesses
Whisper above a windstorm

Voices filter wind-bent grasses
Like genetic shards of earthen vessels
Listing like the windmill’s last vane

Waves of evaporative binary
Return to the cosmos like sightseers
Waving from prairie schooners

Streaming past your narrative
The bleached sheets of un-fetched laundry
Blinding in the South Dakota sun
