Passageway, 1996


outside these windows
straight lines of rain fall
on a mesa's plane

on these walls histories lie
cowboys ramrod-backed and brave
natives naked and noble

the flat discourse of holocaust
the angled dimensions of memory
where hands shape chaos

storms exercise penmanship
blood safe on flat canvasses
eyes vacant of meaning

between these surfaces
and my recreation of time
an unknown calling
