Kenyon

In Ascension, the morning
mist ran rimy fingertips
over the Gothic spires but it
wasn’t the only thing passing
through us, whole swathes
of time too, and words like fishing
hooks sometimes snagged, toilet
paper stuck to our shoes.

The Chicago Train

(the California Zephyr on Route from Colorado to Chicago)
Outside the barn, two stuffed horses,
a Carl Sandburg dream, a rainbow
swing, fields like unshaven legs.
