All Hallows

Even now this landscape is assembling.
The hills darken. The oxen
Sleep in their blue yoke,
The fields having been
Picked clean, the sheaves
Bound evenly and piled at the roadside
Among cinquefoil, as the toothed moon rises:

This is the barrenness
Of harvest or pestilence
And the wife leaning out the window
With her hand extended, as in payment,
And the seeds
Distinct, gold, calling
Come here
Come here, little one

And the soul creeps out of the tree.

Once was fertile the world now nowhere becoming barrenness the womb the landscape full of desert drought the throat of birds t he gigantic abdomen of the ocean full of food poison hemlock- the every roots of the ground venom-the breast of pregnant woman all, everywhere antidotal wood!
