mound 72

who
     constructed the mounds
     flat-topped earthwork
new clothes every morning
  river bottom
  specific perimeter posts
    at shouldered sunrise
   where our sure-handed
observer
  nails posts or
   her summertime dress
  to the floor of his
   thought
       dragging
sack of skulls
  and special investigation
    temple pathway
  summit
he's heading home
   a cup of tea
     a pencil and a notebook

 

standing at railing

neck a seductive arc
  sailors in their hammocks
     dinner lounge
   tabled
  photographed
  before escort up the low
   piped corridors,
before a pink setting
   slavish horned sun
  glowing on shiny
     wall emergent

  in the head, it's:
giant so / lar calendar
   shining blue lipped
  head-nodded
    stomach drop
far from here
   a ridge topped or fenced,
  and borrow pit below
   basked in another
  kind of heat
    thunderstruck,
     she with ritual longing,
he with gifted restraint
