    Undertow

    borne on cool breeze
    gold leaves feather across her cheek
    lay she on the ground gazing to cloudless skies
    hollowed shell of an oak
    rib caged in peeling bark
    screech owl hooting
    she made a home inside the
    wail of the iron beast traversing the flattened
    fields relieved of grain
    ring necked doves like loons warble above the resting plains of her throat
    boats are unsailed afloat on a silent sea of tears inside her bones
    every loudness narrows into a pinpoint then disappears into the setting sun
    she runs through a tidewrack of footsteps and hindsight until she finds the undertow and takes the dive below
