I notice a blind man writing his story in dust
on the hood of a weathered truck.
The truck is red and sits on blocks.
He leans
into the rounded wheel wells with curious intent.
What have I gathered from this?

Stretching the skin of a deer
around the smooth curve of carved birch
as I watch him.
She was foraging for poison when the arrow took her life
before I could offer my hand.

A cool air in the forest tonight,
I drink
from the dripping leaves that hang above me.
They are green beyond the justice of my sight
and I long for the dust
that is destroyed
by the hands of men
who see only darkness.
