North of a rural town



On a humped stone bridge
north of a rural town
beneath the green hills
at the walls end

Where a valley strewn
and a glacier dragged
forked through deaf dunes
in an anxious sweep

The scattered granite spits
above on a green sleeve
soft splints of sand stone
almost hidden in moist moss

Where a bard cries tears
into hands like scratched wood
whiskey drops splashing
on his hobnailed boots

Crying for the wind to stop
and leave him less reminded
but the daisy shins shimmer
as the thistle weeds wave
