Loaf's Salutation

Written by: Andrew Gallagher

Barchans go on droughting in Yagyakarta sods
outpaced here I throw a soliton in gaze-mirage

			*

Here we stand on this, the Lee of 
                                       Dual Sandhorns {    and they

the Phantom Tips of those horns they know what you say -      
such fees to demand and how you shall pay no dues!
 	
I’d rather make alive downward facing forms of genesis!  I
	know, I do know of raining beyond the slip face,

of angles reposed to the honest tenor of our shared Ocean Sky,
        where the firmament congeals
        to dream postures of 
                                   Carretera Interoceanica

where pools in the cool shade of memories that yet are to be
remember of strange filaments, of knees 

reclining and worn to urn-dust in their riggings, 
reduced to the once-wet bones of Joshua ash and yet!

i r i d e s c e n t  s  t r e a m s  
punch 
through
the utmost firmness of form - coalesced 

in situ hubrisae, 

borne still upon gusts of human wresting,
human heft en masse like all your favorite waves of sound, water and light
slammed by force into prophecies that might

release -

and so unseen 
be, 

like Zastruga-dew trees

or this home we call Kzynda.
