A Poem for Gerald V.

My fingers tremble,
placed on a mirror of the past.

Behind us a red moon
burns the Bitterroot,

and seven pairs of wings
take flight across a black heaven

like the seven sisters
sleeping above oblivion.

The dry grass sparkles
in October's frozen jewels,

needles of deadly splendor
just outside our grasp.
