Subject: Hawks and Trains
Shields down last night I dreamed of a train;
naked spaces are for crossing, lots are for running
through, empty trains are to breach a long secret.
Trains go along regardless of rain.
Men will do anything to lay the tracks down.
Steel rails over the snow, groans and metallic
poems wailing.
Last night I stood on a rock and watched a train:
I was the rock, I was the train.

But the night before I saw two hawks playing,
falling, touching, sails in windless air,
like sparks that lust in a draft, muda hands
recalling the affair of earth crammed
with seed, larvae and spirits, and sky
zigzag, torn and damp with heat.

I think "muda" refers to expressive hand gestures in an Eastern dance, but I can't find it on line.

Thanks for your comment!
