cast out a line

Posted to Action Poetry




cast out a song
scream out a rope
rough and long
a voice
a tale
a breath
a rune
quivering in the
light of moon
moving across
pulsing earth
writing a tune
a chant of birth
of ticking stones
in soil and sand
of alien bones
of this raw hand
that's clenched and sore
with random forces
of our lack
of crystal core
of knowing what
it is we drag
along, hurl down
hurl down to
our sources

no one here -
let's braid a rope
to dream us near
the shape of hope

what burns is banished
is taken with lust.
is free. has vanished
from silence
to dust
