Phone Call to Canada


A voice again

Soft pulse of breath

across wired turns

under cold stars

Distance a landscape of gesture

Of strangers and shadows

Incidental squalor


A smooth night

Blue dream of distance

careening to her

Waiting in ordered rooms

She moves to brittle windows

ice-flecked, darkened

Night madness


A tethered field

White elegance of death

over curled grasses,

sleeping webbed cocoons


She sees eyes through the

pane rattling in its mortar

Arctic song
