December 13, 2011
Imagine a piano ...

     in the middle of a field
     in the middle of Kansas

     it’s about to rain

     ten thousand meadow larks
     at dusk
     a tower built by the WPA

     Coronado heading north, stopped here
     plains Indians first saw horses from this gentle rise

     grateful for work, laborers lay out sandstone blocks

     it’s 1938

     a war is about to begin
