Dark on the valley floor
winter animals are abroad
I saw the shape of a woman
whose body was made of roses
in a blaze of light
And the owls all said
“You can never go back now.
You can never go back.”

Frozen in a moment’s glance
secret messages of the heart
Like wings beating hard in the darkness
the sharpness of the memory
and a blinding light
Like the story said
“You can never go back now.
You can never go back.”


from Their coats flapped like God's chops, released November 1, 2004
