Pilot Light

Hidden then found out before too long had past
Instructions backwards what we could forget
Time disappeared there underneath the castle
Just the crawlspace a match and the heater
cooperating at last  I heard a resentment
Almost missed a presentation lemon leaves
Why I'm not on his feed what is the question

Clear Road

The road is clear
Something happened
between the trees bushes
upside down branches
The shade is gone
the tunnel open
landscape remember

Power Grid

Unhooked eventually knowing
a lot of fuss will speed things up
forgotten ones left to their own devices
food everywhere ice water thanks
out of candles out of matches
everything now seems expensive
unnecessary shuffling beneath the deck

Overnight there was
house noise next door
someone coming quietly
middle of the community
candles propane flowers

We found something had changed.
The look of it the feel.
Raking helped. A lawn appeared
in the glass the fish smooth boulder
they worked together stayed away
solo couples came from another town
to get free water beef stew had to toss
carefully eaten edges off edges

Night's Knees

On knees night
uneven tipping
pressing down cautious
where have you been
we'll repair the roof
take fish into shade
sweep the glass
I now know what
it's like all night cracks
sky earth torn away

Body Ran Dry

There is water on the moon
frozen hidden impossible to extract
now more than ever topsy-turvy
what was calling me to look
why did I turn away too large
too small shadows crossing borders
over and over that's why the prophecy
coming true signs the young
the old did they take the time
to listen speaking about it
