“The Coahoma County Wind Cults” — David Berman

“The Coahoma County Wind Cults”


David Berman

My dream walked on four legs
toward the remote source
of a pale yellow letter

only to circle around the cabin
when it got there.

A black and white cave rainbow
arched between two old shoes.

Oxygen bounced off the face of a doll,
looking for the slow dazzling guts
of a life form.

There was a moment of sudden clarity
when the pages of burned in opera glasses,

like a herd crossing zip codes

or an exhausted idea pressing
at the limits of the marquee bulbs,

my dream pushes air.
