Through the chink in the fence


through the chink in the fence--

a strip of sky & earthen wall--

in what faraway land

among hostile forests--

to sit in someone else's room
among books not mine
& write about the sky


to pen ghosts' writings,
take dictations of phantom songs

the untold, the unwritten
hidden in plain sight
