Another's Wind To Blow

Walking around a
Mythical town
That doesn’t exist
Looking for what
I would never find
I trod those same streets
That I had been down
In my dreams before
The sky barren
Except for the sound
Of the exodus
Of wings
Hovering over people
All moving away
The backs of their heads
The only thing visible
As they marched off
Into the dark
With faces and eyes
Mortgaged….

  To pay for all the things
  that they would never do

  In debt to one last promise
  they will never keep

  The terms of their indecision
  written in the blood of repetition

  The movement of the hawk
  —another’s wind to blow

  (Villanova Pennsylvania: March, 2015)
