Give holy things

The coming of the tribe up over the water
Stars in reflection
Hours into the reading
The spray of sea
Time to do

Nuts and bolts
Nails and screws
Tape and Scissors
Cheap and expensive papers
Pens and pencils
Blackening suns
Winter beginnings, mead or wine

The manual telephone
The helicopter
The gyroscope
Hair cut to drift quiet in yellow hills
Men cut into the mountain
Songs and dances

Five hundred miles
Endless green
Stones the height of four men
Steps curved around feet

Stories of children
Walking into the city
Looking for what they lost
