This is Nebraska

To the farmer
the field is a circle,

a finely drawn
poetry of wheat.

To the clerk
the field is a courthouse,

an unfamiliar city
lacking stars.

A story is a finished
animal, a calm voice.

A courthouse is a flying
desk, a game of cabinets.

The farmer is a field of wheat,
the clerk is a hill of ants.

The animals have disappeared,
sent to watch the night sky via satellite.
