Prairie Poetry   
  The Whereabouts

We begin with a river
       Nothing novel nothing unavoidable

Next plant
       Swath the land
       Cut down to build up

John the Baptist, John A., John Deere

Sign here

Or some such myth
       The trickster is no liar


The arcing of bridges
       The best we can do
