At our center is a chant,
like the susurrus of leaves merely breezes
Sometimes it opens lips
to sing like gurgling waters meandering
from right here to there, to anywhere it flows,
or the gentle tread of footfalls
on the trail outside.
it’s a roar so loud
thunder stops in its tracks

Tuned in to the poisonous fallout of over-industrialization and battle, those poems face the darkish part of our postmodern weather with a language that does not provide in. They tremble and shake, they rage opposed to depression, they converse opposed to loss of life and combat with the fateful spirits of Armageddon to loosen their choke-hold on humanity. might be we can't determine it out and the horizon is already on fireplace, and our greatest love shouldn't be greater than an approximation of remorse, yet grass nonetheless grows among the cement blocks of the sidewalk to 'grin of the wild.'
