The Dreaming Cantos 51&2: The Skyler Ancillaries


I know that Skyler wants
to draft another poem
concerning dragonflies.

They’ve opened up his eyes
to all that universe
behind the wall of things

he’s seen since God knows when
that’s made him think he doesn’t
realize where he’s been.

Instead of new construction
I know dragonflies.
Instead of interstates

descending through the suburbs
I see dragonflies.
Instead of subjects, objects,

flags, geography,
untold woods and rivers,
behold the dragonflies.
