Of Earth


Dour dowry of earth
in heaped clumps
littered from the spade
filling the gouge in.
Heavy rain
bumps in soiled vats
on the roof
of the box
swamping it.
The ark is bearded
with thick curls of dirt
and the inhabitant
has its mouth cut off
from sight
being overgrown.

St-Lambert, circa 1981.
