Poem from Every Wound Has A Rhythm
The DistancesOver the patterned feathers
and up the elegant curved neck
of the heron, to where the point
of its beak seems to touch
the snowfields on Mt. Baker:
that great space between
islands and mountain opens,
and someone steps off through
the seven distances
to where the high cooling light
becomes a doorway.
