Poetry and Steer: On Looking for What’s Missing Behind Fences


I looked for you

yesterday in

the grey-brown geese,

in the plush steer

wandering back

and forth and back

unafraid or

unaware of

his grey-brown fence.

I looked for signs

of your leaving

or your blessing

that I will be

born and dead be-

fore you were born.
