what meaning do these birds 
give to any sky     all things through 
questioning      the tense of the verbs is 
important       daughters of the sun 
hair streaming loose
encompassing or persuasive
nowhere does it say the goddess is 
named truth    welcome child she said     far 
from the usual abidance of mankind     somewhere
on the plane of immanence
cattails rattling in a ditch glazed with 
rain water    10,000 crows more 
a massacre than a murder
each black shape a shard of departing 
night     to speak and to say is 
itself an act of translation    
face to face
the uncanny shines through everything
in this journey hope is misplaced     despair 
more so   

. . .

                 

From One, the first part of the poem
