Knoepfle 2-26-04

mano

this stone the life in it
those who shaped it
trusting their own culture
walking this continent
simply at home
this essential implement these edges
indented sides disturbed
a form a possibility
that would crack leg bones for marrow
a maul a grinder for seeds
a stone for a man a woman
already restless in the dust of those
suns they were made of
early perhaps as the angels
