dear Muriel

ok, dear Muriel
your labor and democratic possibility
a poem of love or politics or balancing each discreet
image (fluttering, on the breeze)
I can tell you that I’ve wondered this myself
the array of conspicuous nature
the nature of
a decided concrete layering
of linguistic suggestion
in shades of pastoral, modified
for these new times
union of sentiment, sediment
chiseling against winter
dear Muriel, I am on your road
distinct trace, a flight of ambitious
optimism, each wing lifting in its turn
tradition of this machine, grammatical
economy of flight and return, continuous
reminder, dust settling and blown away.
