dr_con Posted December 11, 2009 Share Posted December 11, 2009 (edited) Heading Night We two strangers talk across the aisle heading north The Sun has moved to Twilight A Calvary Cross appears on a green Marin hill where a human trail meets a vertical gully the bracken subterranean threshold making wild steps Our conversation leaps awkwardly between Saturnian gravity or the impossibility of suspended ethereal rings I wonder if he is satisfied with transgressions of orbit or bound to the Pit willing to watch constellations whirl past- fragments of speech lucid and sensible but unreproducible by Pythagorean logistics a Zodiacal parade of street signs and advertising poor substitutes for interstellar gods signaling from subzero the form and content of our fate- but we nod and agree knowing our hellos and goodbyes are the same subclass of thing as that hillside crossroad between the humans and their stories while implacable nature just creates a necessary shortcut between deluge and foundation and through that passage as I head further transferring to the night set a rural bus same shape same design more carriage than jet Reading of synchronicity while a woman whom despite education suburbanization and gentrification grew up too near a Dead Well or a Bad Tree or some other Axis of hidden History crushed and rolled over still able to push through concrete sprout in-side beneath what doctors can look at becoming a Witch or Simpleton or Great Mother and Shaker seeing the world As it Is Moonlight rejections while False Idols proudly display themselves in Full Daylight I follow my nose to get home she says like a cat And she laughs asking if I've ever seen River Otters Yes Now have I seen Moles Where I grew up In upstate New York she states Flying from her seat and off among loose bags and limbs Back to the Text Where Matter is just another dimension for Thought while Tunneling through the Dark discharging more discrete manifestations of Sensing and Feeling blindly groping through the winding Stars for our way Home.
