Sound Making Surfaces

the whole while
snow puts to bed

differences in landscape

friction in the hiss
raises forests
and lays flat the field

to the ear’s extent –

            •

a puddle in the dark
impossible to miss
because of pissing rain

            •

a sound like
white noise rustle

or friction in the snow screen

drapes over the poem
almost in its form

            •

that pop song with
the submarine ping:

bar dudes sound
the dance floor

with eyes for
and for not

            •

just as a chandelier’s scatter
of twinkling in cathedral acoustics
echoes the higher dimensions

a Homeric simile conforms
to a mind’s raised contours

            •

from the stadium’s roar
thru the third base gate

emerges the sense
the other side will clearly win

            •

where the field ends
the chatter of crickets

peepers mark the water line

            •

let cicadas rattle
the mind cherry
trees harbor winter

in August boughs
a screen of natural static

            •

As snow puts to bed
differences in the landscape
what she says quiets

whatever you’d say
makes us unique
