earth note 1

bowels of red rock shattered
sharp and loose
piling up near swan lake
north minnesota outcasts ripped from bosoms
hot and firm
rock bleeds red shadows
red dust stained white birch bark

fresh and blue the spring air turns
cold crystal
snowmelt running
past the outcrop land made waste
‘neath dusty iron claw machineprints
draglines trucks loaders

north wind answers
ice tears
