this is my place
the damps leaves
gold red bright yellow
the light is diffused
the brittle air
after heavy noxious summer
i spell the name of god with my breath
wolves and bears and buried treasure.
the empty chattering seems ridiculous here
the solemnity of a silent earth...
i walk along an avenue of trees
and see myself in a painting
every atom vibrating
i'm walking deep into the future
every step a hundred years...
