a tiny gazetteer

 

 

Ostrowy, Poland.

Broken bannister painted brown. 

 

Somewhere in Quebec:

Three-eighths mystery.

 

Albany, Vermont 

Two sons, their separate ways.

 

Charlotte, Vermont.

Nothing but the garden.

 

Cleveland, Ohio.

Live geese in a basket;

Bavarian china on layaway.

 

Stowe, Vermont.

Pasture ghosts.

The wrath of trees.

 

Portland, Maine.

The freedom of the uniform.

 

New Guinea.

Crash and shatter.

 

Newport, Vermont.

Not dancing at the Inaugural Ball.

 

St. Johnsbury, Vermont.

First light.

First fear.

 

St. Albans, Vermont.

One lonely field.

 

Essex Junction, Vermont.

How the stars came out.

 

Burlington, Vermont.

The bottom of Lake Champlain.

 

Essex Junction, Vermont.

Walking a different way.

 

Johnson, Vermont.

One butterfly with stunted wings

 

Castleton, Vermont

Promises.

The mantle falls.

 

Keelogues, Ireland.

Cemetery filled

with familiar names.

 

Warsaw, Poland.

Three tables.

 

New Haven, Vermont.

White oak.

Deep blue clay.
