NIS (4 September 1915 - 14 April 2005 / Youngstown, Ohio)

A Boa Strikes Samoa

Bright as disaster
The morning sky
Above a burnished sea

Leans close

As though to devour
Not just one
But all-

Holds still-
For one small signal waiting

To spread its length, slip down
The rope of day

And crush
The soft-delicate,
Bones of earth
