earth note 112

marshall trail, pittsburgh

via the road from kent ohio
     jawbone
a resurrecting of every voice
in a year
when wilderness brings
each soul
a stage
in spite of oneself

i defer to the spirits of may 4, 1970

from every field & forest
     seeds
    
and the trail canopy
grows rich in spite of
all the awkward intrusions
a broken-hearted doe
     stands quiet
& refuses to run
