Stirring : A Literary Collection

Tom Sheehan


I hear an odd wire vibrate
against a dark red wood.
It ripples along, hoarse,
talks a mountain to pieces.

All Iberia is elaborate
in string and lath;
peninsula of high heels,
ribbons dancing on the mane,

black hats horse-parading,
friarís lantern honing swords.
A later moon of Pico de Aneto
dies in the dust of olive trees.

A forlorn SAC bomber, tailed,
falcons its way home silently.
When a bull is born
the earth shakes twice,

and an odd wire vibrates
against a darker red wood.
