These Things Make You Dizzy
A pendulum rocking a thousand miles
above a still body of water.
The ocean at night.
The dome of sky over an open field.
Anything vast and lonely that makes you think
of how you're here, and how it's now,
and how you exist only as a fiber of something
much larger that spirals towards an enormous,
inevitable pinpoint in the distance
right before your eyes.
the tall trees remind me
how much less I could say
than I do
She holds me
in the twilight of her years
how can she hold so still
while the moon and I tremble
field of sunflowers
far as the eye can see

too late to scare my sister―
o wet pale loop of swan's logic
