First-fall of language through the foliage down
to just a series of notes.As children we are taught on which side of a mountain
precipitation tends to fall.To go without purpose in the hills of purpose and learn,
making not a sound as it begins
as if, never having had an utterance for rain
a new thirst startsdescending from the ridgeline into the syllable of rain.
