Impression of a field

Again, this is indiscriminate light
angled by the earth   its axis collapsing
and if these people stood still perhaps
they would be painted differently over time
as the sun closed in the distance   and the bar
of light decreased slowly to a slit
marking their midriff   circling their wrists

Again, this is a pattern of growth
from which crops or humans can be
repeated   modified   or granted power
and as the wind realigns   the jointed
stalks of barley becoming darker   begin
to resemble knees   from which
they are only an shifted angle
an altered code of letters   away
