Loosestrife (a haiku sequence)

December 22, 2008

spikes of loosestrife
pointing at the same place
in the sky

barren field
radiating heat, a door
lies there

through here
there came bison,
then SUVs

days later,
fire ants cross
a sea of glass

handprint
shrinks to a cave bear
then disappears

    No Return

    I look out on glass,
    Miles, glass molten, then frozen
    Seas, glass left behind
    After the hot white blast,
    The wind and black thunderclap
    Of hopeless despair,
    Of me losing you,
    Of you looking back blindly
    After seeing this day.
