  • The Mystery of the Great Blue Heron

    The poet tries to make the heron a god,
    but the heron does not care. The heron
    wades along the shore, a dark body
    absorbing light, patience stopping time.
    The poet makes sounds like prayer,
    but the heron is merely annoyed, stepping
    into the air and pulling with broad wings.
    The poet carefully records a sacred text,
    but the heron has found a hidden pool
    among the small trees and stands there
    all day, staring coldly into the water,
    far from the songs, from the blood,
    from all the voices that beg for mercy.
