Tracks Left by Shadows


      You have kindness

                                                       I was told

and that blazed

                                         the heart


you are inside the engines of progress


where tracks lay their patterns

                                            across the snow


among the secret places     are days of wisdom


as policies are engaged

                                                       into a world

of economic transfer

                                         of asset remediation


we were giants         exfoliated

                              and burned             to a core


          a terrible white light


as a nation rose


  leaving behind

                              the years of infamy.
