the light farms

<the light farms>

 

<<a mirror from the moons eye swoon, in nightflight : a boeing sevenfifty owl>>

 

day, night-gleaming, glimming, knowing little of what they offer,

what they are taken for, granted, as a sign to a stranger, a flaneur,

to an airly nocturnal hand they are as growing goldlit wheatfields,

as cornrows over the pate of the earth,

                                                       does corn know of its often harvest ?

god knows they store the sun to feed the stars

what their steel spends along the flint of the night :

                                                                        their theyre,

there-brinking, blinking eyelet 1ing 1s,

ever profligate stalks the prism-eyed see bloom the

                                                                        teary-

                                                                            rainy-

                                                                                    sleepslick-

                                                                                        & dewy-eyed see

branching everunto, for what that theyre worth,

the psychedelic, the desperate, the schizos & gurus too

see what hovers over a species radiant incityousnests—

                                                                               nightly,

with thankfulness, scythe, & slavering maw

Father Explains Prayer

I don’t know if there’s a god,
Poppa didn’t think so, Momma did–

but when a scaffold buckled
on a job in ‘86, I doubled

over in a heap that broke my back,
my arms, damn near my neck.

Close to death, back ruptured by the fall,
I prayed and I survived it all.
