still dead sisters & brothers

singing to me

from la drang valley

& brest litovsk

are not abstract

skins covering skins

blood

debts determined

when light

breaks

morning's

majesty

& bones

be more

than being

robed in secrets

soil

& seed

water's

wind

wails

water

blood's

fury

shall not

sleep

nor

sleep

slitting wrists

1978 la roch

sur yon

damp

year of tears

light

look at lips

earth

slips

blue

with longing

red

on red

we wild

& wise

to take

time not

permitting

time to take

us

we

one

until now

until now

blood debts

dew

wipe my face

wherever you are

yearning

for time

to turn

back to shadow

feel flesh

of oceans

 

orderCB still dead
