from an evolving collection entitled Sun Lake Moon
need not roll back in prophecy
need not be angled into the wind
to smell blood.
need not travel through night air
like a silent hunting owl
to discern fateful betrayals, blackmail, treason.
need not be finely-tuned
to hear the dying children of Yemen.
