from ‘Atlas’ (excerpt two)


by Glenn Bach

What lies in the origin
of names for this
circumference

it begins with water.

None of the details are explained,
but, if our dwellings are made
from the earth,
what is this place?

Of the body to the building,
at home in the plains of light,
but, where can we plant
our feet?

Harvest to continue producing,
the land on which the city

if the ice comes,

will the fans be enough?

In this marginal area,
the water may never reach the ground.
