the farther it gets the smaller it gets

a north for the large antlered deer to winter over
dark even snow a north for an endless day we will have
green yes and the clear peat brown water fast flowing

the fossil so desperately far from its origin

under the same sun

we who loved the story’s faraway the more than one
a meeting point a mist rises before nightfall along the
folds of the foothills

this way will you go along a few steps are enough
to establish an intent and to find the best view

is a rock bound shore and welcome a sky for it must
match all humors peopled and fish for a hinterland
