Red Cloud: Poem by Miriam Sagan

Red Cloud

1.

lace curtains
Venus at dusk
Nebraska

an old story—
wind ruffles
the pages of a book

no longer salvage—
an expensive quilt;
prairie, wind, train whistle

loneliness
made more lonely
by a lonely tale

2.

blue horses
come over the ridge
of the mind

warriors painted on hide

songlines tell us about
water/no water

even a small girl
in her nightgown
might fly barefoot
over the town’s steeples
and train tracks

every thing
in its essence
yearns
to go elsewhere
