Caught in a thunderstorm
from the vineyard
with their hoes
where metal meets wood
the two held fast
by a nail
If memory is a bridge, what does it cross, how long is its span, and how high above?
If it is a graveyard, whose bones does it contain?
If it is a church, who is nailed to the cross?
If it is the final refuge, how does it come to be lost?
