Or: Sam and the beloved dead.
Send a ghost home to his mother; stop
all the watches, slit-wristed, watch
while your brother flares, freaks,
freights on like fire; bide, find
your little sister bloody shoot
again your first wolf, nip and pull
the trigger on your fathers, demon;
brother, demon, self; find your sister
red in a bloody tub, burnt; stop
quail-hearted to plant in dirt
the flameflower, double blossoms for the code
that brought you here, pyre of cedar, salt,
that’s for guilt; delphinium, iris,
that’s for smarts; blues the color of what,
peace, skies, acre of Oz, eyes
of your lover your mother, heaven;
for every one of the dead
, (I was an angel, pillar,
intent or smoke,
I am, death. ) Speak their names, ,
to goodbye, plant seeds on the prairie
for your transgressions, peel back the skin, cry,
pray, take the arm off at the shoulder
in your dreams, cut, love, kneel--
tell your sleeping sister it was hope.
