a poem

...es sind/ noch Lieder zu singen jenseits/ der Menschen
-Paul Celan

In the threadbare
air, through the tattered
weave of leaves,
the blue light cools
into ash black shadow

Tree: the high
thought roots itself
in the luminous clay
of the caught light's closeness
to audibility

So we know that again
today, there are songs
still to be sung. they
exist. Just on the other
side of mankind.

from Pieces of Map, Pieces of Music
