A southern people

A southern people


a southern people,

somewhere beneath the wall

or as a kind of wall

somewhere within the sanctuary

bald stillness of the sanctuary

somewhere inside the foundation

before the cracking of the foundation

where feet walked earth before mention

of exodus, there were goods

at the crux , words that moved

lips at daily mysteries traded

but no longer shared; there was the tower,

only an edge against the black flat

of thunder cloud, to break south

under built pressure,

always about to break south
