Print Version

I am not afraid when you call me down
down the basement steps under the house
down, down in the ground

black cows are limping, the white dogs bark
crickets are screaming, smoke in the barn
just like a field snake eating a mouse
just like a blue gill, hook through its mouth
down, down in the ground

cry for the toy trains lost in the snow
cry for the dead deer surrounded by crows
you call me softly down in the dark
down where the red worms circle like sharks
down, down in the ground

under the black mud in your quiet house
you have prepared my place to lie down
a house in the rock where sorrows drown
old man or baby make no more sound
down, down in the ground

  • Bury Me Here
    "the Cathedral in Cologne looks like a spaceship
    like the hand of God falling from the sky
    a 1000 stone-carved saints hang like icicles
    but icicles don't take 1000 years to die..."
  • Down in the Ground
    "down in the valley of hollow logs
    two lovers lay in the weeds
    safe in the net of their sweaty arms
    safe from the wind in the trees..."
  • Down in the Valley of Hollow Logs
    "there's a mountain north of Winnipeg
    buried under ice
    and as the black clouds roll above
    white pines crack like glass..."
  • I Fell
    "last night I went out walking
    out on the edge of town
    not going no place special
    only wandering around..."
  • Last Night I Went out Walking
    "my ghost drives around with a bag of dead fish
    falling neutrinos drift through the trees
    he staggers and reels, runs up credit card bills
    and clogs up the toilet with bottles of pills..."
  • My Ghost
    "we came in this world together
    legs wrapped around each other
    my cheek against my sister's
    we were born like tangled vine..."
  • My Sisters Tiny Hands
    "falling snow spun above the road
    winding through the dark woods
    where my pick-up stalled
    falling snow hissing through the air..."
  • Stalled
    "the giant of Illinois
    died from a blister on his toe
    after walking all day throughthe first winter's snow
    throwing bits of stale breadto the last speckled doves..."
