Courtyards Of Silence

Tree sing
with voices limbs
against the strangeness of wind
bark harps combing midnight
How your notes
like silk of leaves fly.
like lovers lips
Still within the crude walls
of home
that keep out twilight...


i turn in bed
as books cascade
into a liquid sea of letters
visions content in words,
rustle patterns in the blindspots of mind
language castles
 i long fashioned in innocence
as a train growls
somewhere
in the mysteries of woods.

With my solitude
covers like mix matched blankets

my dreams
like small goats
dance and hop
against the logic of
ribs long bandaged

as tails twirl
and press their hornless heads
against the trousers.
i wear  over images...
i swallow the fruit of quietness  
in coveralls of silence

Why cannot i sing
for the world
has long worn  my tongue
into flatness
and dance caprious ones
children of inward mountains...

as the moon welcomes
curving fields of earth--
crop circles of remembrance
ofers emptiness of sky
as suggestions of horns grows
as imaginary goat kids romp
in the echoing courtyards of my soul
for one day they know
they shall have horns
as their hoves echo
on ancestral coblestones....
