The line of the horizon

...over there, just there - that flat line -
that there
is the end of this country, of our land

so don't go blaming me if you go beyond
that there
line and get yourself lost, never to return.

//// A lip's line // afar's horizon.

...I'll get lost, sure - when you do,
because we both know we're

adventurers bound for better things;

put up your hood and we'll run.

//// A wheat's field // a cow's heard.

...the sound of one hand in need
the 'yes' of the tree in creak

as we balance on its fallen trunk
as if ancient and at our best.
