CAROL SHILLIBEER
No Phone Motel

All across America people know your voice. You open your mouth and there are those who are willing to swear your high lark warble flooding the blue sky brings down on all our heads the Spirit. Not that I believe such things, because me, all I hear is the motel clerk refusing to turn on our phone because to him your voice is just brown.

CAROL SHILLIBEER
Ethnopoetics

tracks the mind that still wanders out of ways customary and lingers at the gate to see past the tree with iridescent leaves--their edges black- shadowing the stone wall that folds in against the forest. The gate is broken, and past there are boles that lead up hill beyond the plums, stately orchard's prize, now feral and beyond enclosure. There is a choice to go, to track, but wild wood points light's growth, and windy shadows quicken, constellating glyphs on the road. Found out there— irregular pleasures perhap, but still fine compositions; margins marked by track, deer, and columns scribed in native trunks. A choice, but making such a passage, finding, miles on, a viridian ceasura in which a lone tree branches fruiting dark nuts, seems as inevitable as protean syntax.
