Unburying Life

Unburying Life


I know I lead a life apart


I’m not sure what it’s for

Being alive or being apart


The best thing I seem to

Do for now is eke out words

On paper in a wide electric



Like a fisher near new water

I cast about the promise of

Dawn blue and deep green


Is my better season spent

Right here


Because I write for you

Almost Heaven

Almost Heaven

Kanawha, Nicholas,

To water and to fire

In the anger of the



Prometheus surrenders

To the whim of



Touched with the

Power of Poseidon

And sport-attitude

Of Zeus


We reach over gods

Toward better



Praying for the

Tendril touch that

Holds the earth

And sky


And all the heavens


Because on land and

Other West Virginia

Lives, an ocean’s

Upheaval falls


Drowning, splitting

The ground on

Which we alive yet

Strive to stand
