What Will Happen in the End
the heron skims the night river
like a single wing
of the moon and the river
with ice and the heron rims
the river of night, becomes
two wings, now four;
the white wind
careens in cold; white owls
beat the rising wind, the rising
beyond the discernible
as if the wind
a phosphorescent flood
rushes from the seed
of the heron’s eye
