Revenant

only in the Tomorrow Lands did I see scattered ravens
bend the air in flight and only then did I stage the light
with them, the horizon still a slit between two joins, as
one where play occurred and one where it one day would

there were sounds that steamed up through the grills
a merging, a confusion of merry-go-rounds, listening,
taking part in what wasn't theirs to take part in but
easing through the hours of night I lay trapped inside

I could hear the living pounding the earth above me
muffled laughter, though it could have been wailing,
more yesterdays poured out of holes, pooling, seeping,
and yet I hoped I would see the ravens one more time
