the wind inside holloway

it
is a whispered growl
a
scream into or
of
silence
the sweet horizon
crest of the
oak hill
downward into
foxboro
a
scenery
laid out like a forever
time clock
choose a time
and any location
can be found
to
match
driving here in
ontario

the

old house set back
in the trees
strong
like the lumber
the
gravel
driveway
watching
the highway
and finding refuge
in the quiet
acreage
of a forest
and
brother houses
sharing
the freedom
that
the work hour
road can
not
take
the pull into the
drive and
know you are
safe
sound and free
from
the day into
night
